The Royal Gunpowder Mills closes its 2019 season with a bang at our annual Guy Fawkes and Fireworks Festival! Combining History, science, activities, and fireworks – perfect for all the family!

With lots to see and do all afternoon, come along early to make the most of your day! From 2pm onwards you can see a short theatre production – ‘The Ghost of Guy Fawkes’* and Professor Nitrate is back in the Mad Lab for 4 interactive shows explaining the science of explosions! Plus, there are hands on and take home activities such as Slime making and Lantern making!

A tractor trailer guided tour is a wonderful opportunity to explore the history of our 300 year old site which was once a Gunpowder factory for a nominal fee. These leave at 2:30pm and 3:30pm. There are also our Rocket Vault, Armoury, and Exhibitions that reveal the stories and science behind our Gunpowder heritage!

As darkness falls you can warm up with some hot food from our Gunpowder Café and selection of Food Stalls. On both Saturday and Sunday festivities conclude with an epic fireworks display at 7pm from ForceFX, the company behind the special effects of movies, TV, and music festivals.

LAST ENTRY = 6pm - but gates will close earlier if we reach capacity. Book online to ensure entry!

PLEASE NOTE – No fireworks including sparklers are to be brought onto the site.

*Space inside our inside activities such as “The Mad Lab”, “The Theatre” and “The Spinks Gallery” is offered on a first come, first serve basis and queuing systems are in place, so we advise turning up early to allow plenty of time.

This event qualifies as a “Special Event” as part of the Royal Gunpowder Mills Season Ticket.
