FIREWORKS DISPLAY - 7PM

It’s time to celebrate Bonfire Night in spectacular style as the Royal Gunpowder Mills brings its 2017 season to an end with the Guy Fawkes Festival & Fireworks, when the historic site on the banks of the River Lea hosts a weekend packed full of activities for all.

We tell the famous story of the plot to blow up parliament in the setting of what was once a real Gunpowder Factory! From 2pm onwards there are Family Fun Activities featuring Slime Making and Lantern Making* for children of all ages. A short theatre production, Musket Firing, takes the audience into scenes from the plot. There are science shows with Professor Nitrate explaining the science of explosions, and a Stuart Foods Experience where you can learn all about the Stuarts eating habits. As darkness falls, you can warm up with some hot food from our Gunpowder Cafe and food outlets. Both days conclude in an amazing fireworks display from Force FX, the company behind the special effects you see in movies, TV and music festivals!

Our activities begin at 2pm. The Fireworks Display will take place at 7pm , our last entry time is 6.30pm however this is subject to change due to popularity.
