The best place to view the fireworks is from the Main Stage area.


Fireworks, whilst entertaining for humans, can be a little scary for our four legged friends. Please ensure your pets are suitably restrained/brought inside prior to the fireworks being let off. This will prevent them from getting out and getting themselves lost after the event.
