Fireworks at Forde

November 2 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

Set against the historic backdrop of Forde Abbey, watch a spectacular firework display light up the night sky.

It’ll be a evening of pyrotechnic pizzaz and music to match the illuminations overhead, with some great entertainment and guest performers appearing during the evening along with a rather special bonfire lighting mini-event which the team hope will take on a life of its own in the years to come.

There will be an Otter Beer bar serving fine beers and wine alongside hot food on sale and glow-in-the-dark accessories to get you in the Bonfire Night spirit.

“A firework show should be so much more than just coloured explosions in the sky…” says Angus Fletcher who, with his very experienced crew, will be staging the new Fireworks at Forde event at Forde Abbey on November 2nd.

Angus has produced shows all over Britain and Europe including a number of private events at Forde Abbey and other venues in the South West. “It is the most beautiful location and with the Capability Brown designed gardens lending themselves to the full range of fireworks, flame and theatrical effects we are planning something very special for November”, he promises. Music plays a very big part in the evening and will combine perfectly with the ‘big stage’ offered by the Abbey. Alongside the sound will come large scale fire effects, clouds of coloured smoke and eerie, strobing lights creating images of great beauty amongst the trees… “and that’s before a single firework is launched,” say the team!

Fireworks at Forde promises to be a fantastic evening so make sure to save the date!

Gates open at 5.30pm, Fireworks from 7pm.



Please DO NOT bring SPARKLERS or your own FIREWORKS to the event. In the interests of health and safety, they are NOT PERMITTED at the venue.
