They Shoot Horses Don't They?
Blackpool is known as the "ballroom capital of Britain". This rotating ball covered in 46,500 mirrors, is named after the 1969 film about a ballroom marathon. Created by artist Michael Trainor and erected at Harrow Place on the New South Promenade in October 2002, it was at that time the world's largest mirror ball, 20ft in diameter and weighing 4.5 tonnes.
Here it is reflecting the illuminations.
You can see daytime views of the mirrorball in my post from June 2008.
