Festival of Fireworks at Catton Hall

Why is this Festival so special?

The Festival of Fireworks has been a much loved annual event since 1999.  It is organised by Jubilee Fireworks; a globally respected and highly decorated display company which was founded over 30 years ago.

The Festival was originally located in the grounds of Shugborough Hall, former home of Lord Lichfield.  The event was relocated to the stunning grounds of Catton Hall in 2008, and has continued to expand.

The unique non-competition format of this Festival allows invited display companies to showcase their creative talents without typical restrictions.  For these amazing pyrotechnicians, the sky really is the limit.  You know that you will be left awestruck by the incredible firework displays, all set to music.  This really is a night to remember.

Additional Attractions

Steam Rally

The Festival of Fireworks has always been a family event, and for those who want to enjoy the day to its fullest, we host a Steam Rally (weather permitting), in front of the beautiful grounds of Catton Hall.

Vintage steam engines and miniature vehicles fill the lawns, which can all be enjoyed alongside our Food Festival from 2pm onwards.

Although very unlikely, severe weather conditions could prevent the Steam Rally from going ahead due to risk of damage to the Hall grounds.  Any such circumstance would be conveyed on this website and through social media.
