Fireworks Night at Blists Hill

Get fired up on Fireworks Night, Saturday 2 November, at Blists Hill Victorian Town.

As well as the spectacular family fireworks display on The Green 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.

The highlight of the night will be the fantastic fireworks extravaganza accompanied by music, which will start at around 7.30pm and light up the night sky over the Ironbridge Gorge.

Tickets will be available in late Summer.

Please note, if there is a need to cancel this event because of bad weather it will be rescheduled for Saturday 9 November. Ironbridge Gorge Museums Trust will not be offering refunds for weather cancellation unless ticket holders can't make the rescheduled event. It is suggested making sure both dates are free in your diary before booking.
