what does it mean by "towards the conclusion of a Blackpool beano"? Already, behind him, people were coming out of their houses, and descending from the rooms above shops. There were men, women, and children. Most of them were fully dressed, and must have been waiting in silence and darkness for the call; but a few were dishevelled in night attire or the first garments which had come to hand. Some formed themselves into groups, and advanced arm in arm, as if towards the conclusion of a Blackpool beano. More came singly, ecstatic and waving their arms above their heads, as the first man had done. All cried out, again and again, with no cohesion or harmony. ‘The dead are awake! The dead are awake!’ Q: what does it mean by "towards the conclusion of a Blackpool beano"? does it mean that the beano is going to be in the end or mean that they are going to join the beano?

I am not British, but I think it means something like "a party where everyone got really drunk"
