A guardian must be in possession of a full price adult ticket. Carers are deemed to be guardians and must also pay a full adult rate. We sometimes offer concessions for recognised Carers but this is assessed on a case by case basis. If you wish to apply for a concession rate then this must be applied for in writing with supportive documents to Andrew Wiggins, Jubilee Fireworks Ltd, Unit 29 Dawley Trading Estate, Stallings Lane, Kingswinford, DY6 7AP.
