Fireworks at Forde
2 November 2019 - 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm| £3 – £30
Set against the historic backdrop of Forde Abbey, watch a spectacular firework display light up the night sky. It’s unmissable entertainment for all ages with live music, a pipe band, delicious food to warm the cockles and a show stopping theatre of illumination that will take your breath away.
Taking to the mic this year, we’ll be joined by ‘Lost,’ a talented band set to makes waves. And with the accompaniment of delicious loaded sweet potatoes from V Dorset, burgers and bangers with all the extras, flavours from around the world served up by The Green Bean and introducing Weird Doughs – deep fried cookie dough with a side serving of ice cream. Deliciously moreish with a choice of salted caramel, unicorn and Oreo flavours. There will be an Otter Beer bar serving fine beers and wine alongside hot drinks and all the usual cheer to be found in the beer tent before proceedings get underway.
It wouldn’t be fireworks at Forde without a procession of bag pipes and drums, and we’ll be joined by musical folk from Clayesmore and Downside schools, who’ll be leading the way to the lighting of the bonfire. And with much fanfare and to do, it’s a truly beautiful start to the evening.
“It is so wonderful to be moving into our second year of Fireworks at Forde,” says Angus Fletcher who has created and produced shows all over the South West and further afield in the UK. “From the moment of arrival at the Abbey we will be offering our audience great entertainment, music, food and drink alongside the anticipation of what is to come. The drama of the bonfire lighting is a particular favourite moment for us all and it really brings the evening alive. Once again, we will be using the stunning location to its fullest effect, creating light and shade, smoke and fire amidst the majestic trees as well as a visual feast high in the sky above. We are really excited to be back on the big firework stage of Fireworks at Forde and look forward to seeing you on the 2nd November.”
Fireworks at Forde promises to be a fantastic evening so make sure to save the date!
Gates open at 5pm, Fireworks from 7pm.
