Classed as one of the largest fireworks displays in South, not only is there a spectacular display on offer, but also plenty of attractions and live entertainment on offer before the main event.
The theme of this year’s event is “Back to the 80’s”. There will be the old-fashioned fairground with old classic games and rides on offer such as: coconut shy’s, a big wheel and the classic carousel with extravagant horses and even a fancy-dress competition; so drag out your 80’s shell suit, find out your clothes with the biggest shoulder pads or dress up as your favourite 80’s music or tv personality.
During the day you can visit the Beaulieu attractions which are open from 10am as normal. Why not make a day with all the family and take a walk around the serene grounds and gardens that surround the palace house, take a ride on the mono rail or open top veteran bus, walk in the footsteps of a thousand monks and view the history of Beaulieu Abbey, wonder around the national motor museum or if you’re a bit of a petrol head take a trip into the world of top gear and see some of the iconic cars from the challenges in the programme and take a seat in the famous BBC Top Gear studio. (please note the world of top gear closes at 3pm).
If you want to turn up just for the experience of the 80’s then the gates for this and the fireworks will not open until 3pm. Make sure you are ready to celebrate a decade of memorable music, film, technology as well as the groovy fashion.
