  • Free fireworks display returns to Castle Grounds
  • Music, food stalls and fun fair on site
  • Visitors are encouraged to walk or use public transport, roads and parking expected to be busy – plan your journey

The countdown is on to the biggest and most popular event in Tamworth Borough Council’s calendar as the FREE fireworks spectacular returns with a breath-taking display to light up the skies above the Castle Grounds on Saturday, November 5, 2022.

The extravaganza will return bringing a great evening of fun for the whole family. This year’s impressive display of fireworks, set to music, will light up the skies above Tamworth at 7pm, site open from 5.30pm with food stalls and a fun fair.

Organised by Tamworth Borough Council, the event has become a firm favourite in the town’s annual calendar of events pulling in around 25,000 visitors in previous years, it is expected an even greater surge in this year’s attendance, so please allow ample time for travel and parking to make the most of this wonderful event.

Council staff will be handing out wristbands for children, at the main entrances for parents to write their contact details on. Alternatively, parents can place a wristband on their child at home, prior to arriving, to save queuing at the entrances.

There will also be the opportunity to visit Tamworth Castle after dark, last admission is 5pm, doors close at 7pm (The Gatehouse will be open until 8pm serving drinks). No viewing of the fireworks will be possible from inside the castle. Normal admission prices will apply.

People are advised to walk or use public transport where possible and to arrive in plenty of time for the fireworks as some footpaths around the area will close during the display for safety reasons.  

Due to the event’s popularity, visitors are asked to plan ahead and be patient when travelling to the event and moving in and out of the main arena. Visitors are also asked to follow instructions from the stewarding team.

Councillor Robert Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “This event has become incredibly popular over the years drawing high numbers of visitors from near and far.

“We are delighted to be able to host such a large event for the 13th year, free of charge, we are lucky to have the resources and facilities to make it all possible to deliver an amazing display of pyrotechnics and entertainment.

“I hope lots of families come along to the Castle Grounds and enjoy the celebrations safely.”
