I might have to eat my word a little (lets hope so :)), it looks like we could be getting some music and real talent on stage with the bands and the Taiko Drummers above which will be great.

Unlike the Skegness Illumination in the past it looks like they are trying to modernise it a little, still not sure about following mostly the old format of the Skegness Illuminations, but it looks like they are at last thinking a little outside the box, by bringing entertainment a bit more adventurous than what their used to providing.

Now all we need is for them to go all the way outside the box and we could have an event to rival the SO Festival and maybe even Blackpool :)
