Alton Towers Fireworks

Every year, we welcome families and thrill seekers of all ages to our spectacular fireworks.

Our fireworks event has always been popular with locals from Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire; but we’re fast becoming known as one of the best fireworks displays in the UK! 

Hosted on the closest weekend in November, our Bonfire Night fireworks events span three whole days! Be sure to book in advance to avoid missing out.

Remember, remember, this sensational event will be your last chance to experience our record-breaking rides and attractions before our 2019 theme park season comes to an end.

What’s more, as the theme park stays open late for the fireworks display, you can even ride in the dark!
