TAMWORTH FIREWORK DISPLAY BACK WITH A BANG
Tamworth FREE fireworks display is back!
Tamworth is famous for its beautiful 14th, 15th, and 19th century architecture, and it overlooks the Pleasure grounds that have stunning floral terraces dropping down the banks of the river anker and breath-taking open grassland.
Tamworth castle grounds will be the location of the spectacular fireworks display.
The castle will also open its doors to the public for an after dark tour from 3pm – 7pm.
Tickets will be sold separately for this, and the fireworks will not be visible from within the castle.
In previous years the popular fireworks display has attracted more than 25,000 people and this year is said to hit new records!
With delicious food from multicultural vendors, face painting for the kids (and the adults 😉) , a sparkler zone, funfair, and an array of different performers.
It’s going to be a banger!
The entertainment will begin at 5:30 and the fireworks display will start at 7pm.
The pyrotechnics specialists will light up the skies and create a show to remember, accompanied by famous music from TV themes.
The event is organised by Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts and Events Team and sponsored by Ankerside shopping centre.
People are advised to walk to the event if possible or use public transport and arrive in plenty of time for the fireworks as some foot paths around the area will be closed during the display for health and safety reasons.
