Catton Hall, a superb Country House venue in South Derbyshire, is the location for one of the UK’s largest fireworks extravaganzas. The Festival of Fireworks is an opportunity to savour four breathtaking fireworks displays, all set to music, in one unforgettable evening. Typically, fireworks displays of this calibre are restricted by competition rules, however at the Festival of Fireworks each display company is free to showcase their design talents in any manner they chose, making it a unique and jaw-dropping experience.
The Festival of Fireworks offers the opportunity to experience spectacular and stunning examples of the art of pyrotechnics presented by some of the world’s best display companies, in the extensive Hall grounds. Ideal for a family outing, why not bring a picnic and enjoy this breathtaking show, noted by many as the best fireworks event in the UK.
The Festival of Fireworks is regarded as one of the premier UK events for all fireworks enthusiasts, and those who enjoy first class outdoor entertainment. This year, it will be held on Saturday 2nd September.
Catton has been in the hands of the same family since 1405 and still remains the private home of the Neilsons. The present house, originally designed by James Gibbs and built by Smith of Warwick in 1742, is virtually unchanged and contains its original collection of fine family and Royal portraits. There are fascinating family connections with Lord Byron, as well as with Napolean and the Duke of Cumberland, George III’s brother.
