The event

Experience the skies set ablaze by four spectacular firework companies, at this our 19th Festival of Fireworks, organized by the Jubilee Fireworks.

Catton Hall, a superb Country House venue in South Derbyshire, is the location for this event; 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.  Gates open at 12pm, where activities and services include a variety of superb catering companies indulging foodies with delicious meals from around the world. This year, we will also host a Steam Rally!  All on the stunning Hall grounds.


The venue

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.


The teams

This 20th anniversary year promises to be an incredible firework extravaganza, with four amazing display companies who promise to set fire to the evening skies in spectacular style, with precision-programmed shows designed to music.   Dynamic Fireworks from Colchester, G2 Fireworks from Middlesborough, Bright Sparks from Clwyd, and event organisers Jubilee Fireworks from West Midlands.
