Since its return eight years ago, the magical extravaganza has become a firm family favourite on the Tamworth events calendar and continues to grow each year, drawing more and more visitors from across the country.
In 2014 it attracted record crowds of 28,000 people – a rise of 8,000 on the previous year.
Despite its huge success, Tamworth Borough Council’s Arts & Events team is committed to making it bigger and better all the time.
The whole family can enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment, starting at 6pm and including fire performers, face painting, a sparkler zone, family activities, food stalls and the fair.
The climax of the event will of course be the impressive 20-minute pyrotechnic display set to music, which will light up the sky from 8pm.
Tamworth Borough Council Deputy Leader, Cllr Rob Pritchard, said: “It’s incredible how popular this event has become and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us this year. We are proud to be able to put on such a fantastic free event that can be enjoyed by thousands upon thousands of people. It now draws visitors from all over the country.
“We are lucky in Tamworth to have the resources and facilities to host such an event and I would encourage everyone to come along and enjoy the show. As always we would advise people to get there early because it is very popular.”
The Tamworth fireworks spectacular is sponsored by Ankerside Shopping Centre.
Another date for the diary is the switching on of the Christmas lights, which follows hot on the heels of the fireworks spectacular on November 22nd.
St Editha’s Square will once again become the centre of festive cheer in another annual event which draws thousands of people.
