Blackpool Illuminations light up Salford Quays

You’re too late to see it for yourself, but this is what it looked like when Blackpool Illuminations lit up Salford Quays for Lightwaves 2016.

Our favourite part of the event was being able to control the lights on board hundreds of little boats.

Even without the light show, MediaCityUK is now a great place for a stroll, with the BBC, Lowry and Imperial War Museum North all really impressive after dark.
