Fireworks Night at Blists Hill
Get fired up on Fireworks Night, Saturday 3 November, at Blists Hill Victorian Town. As well as the spectacular family fireworks display on The Green, new this year will be a fiery performance in the Ironworks by Scarlet Butterfly.
Watch and be amazed by fire eating, fire breathing and fire spinning– but don’t try this at home! Also see molten iron being poured into moulds during the dramatic iron casting demonstration in the Foundry.
The gates open at 6pm allowing plenty of time to explore the Town’s Victorian streets and atmospheric buildings. Wrap up warm, tuck into hot food or a cup of chocolate from the café and enjoy the smell of coal fires burning as you make your way down to the Town’s Green for the show. You will be able talk to the townsfolk in their cottages, shops and other places of work and hear about life in the late 1800s.
