Layton’s Christmas light’s switch on

As of today – Blackpool’s Saddest Christmas Tree is no more.

Blackpool Council workers were seen clearing the site earlier today using a large truck with an articulating arm and bucket – known as a grab truck or a grabber.

The large truck was perched atop short blocks of wood which were sinking deep into the wet ground.

3 workers were on the site and as you can see at the end of this tiktok video – another Blackpool Council vehicle was also present.

Visitors will get a chance to visit Layton’s very own version of the famous advert – the Rola-Cola truck!

The truck will be parked  outside Cheapermarket on the evening of the switch on.

The event will also feature festive music from Blackpool Brass, Blackpool Music Service Community Choir and the choirs from Trinity Parish and Christ The King school.

The Layton is situated at the opposite end of the road to the christmas tree and will be host to an indoor christmas market ran in conjunction with the festive switch on event.


On their event page the organiser also explains about a raffle –
