You will be viewing the firework show in a field, which could be muddy, therefore we recommend wearing appropriate footwear such as walking boots.

We are lucky that the site can cope with most of the weather November throws at us!  The area you will be standing to watch the display is on a slope, so it does not flood.  However, if we have had a lot of rain then be aware the site will be wet and slippery and appropriate footwear – walking boots, or wellingtons are recommended.  Please leave extra time to get to the viewing area.

The main walkways and entrances to the field are lit, however, there are areas in the field which maybe dark, so we recommend you bring a torch with you.

There will be no ticket sales at the event this year.

All tickets purchased online are either mobile tickets or print at home.  You will not receive any tickets through the post.

Details of Kenilworths restaurants and pubs is available here

No I’m sorry your fireworks ticket will only allow you access to the fireworks display from 5:30pm. To go into the castle a separate admission ticket will need to be purchased from English Heritage before 3:30pm (prior to the castle closing at 4pm). Full details are available from the English Heritage website

Last admissions is at 6.45pm, the fireworks will start shortly after this.

To allow time to exit the event you should expect to be out of the castle area by around 8:15pm

If you wish to buy a Senior ticket, you must 65 or over.

Child tickets apply to children up to the age of 13. Children aged 14 or over require an adult ticket but those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for children under the age of 3, however they must have an infant ticket available from our ticket site. No buggies are permitted at the event.

This is a family event but we do not recommend bringing children aged 3 or under. This is due to the large crowd, noise (both music and fireworks), darkness and potentially slippery underfoot conditions. If you choose to bring children 3 then this is at your own risk. Please note you cannot bring prams or buggies into the event for safety reasons.

We have limited space for food vendors and our pitches sell out months in advance of the event!  Please contact us at least 6 months before the event if you want to be considered for a pitch.

Unfortunately we do not have space for gift vendors.

Tickets normally go on sale in September, but the date is not fixed.  When they are available our website will be updated with a link to the next event.

Sorry, we are unable to offer any discounts for group, students, etc.

This is a charity event, all money raised goes to local causes in the Kenilworth area

Kenilworth Castle has a past dotted with royal connections, strategic fortifications and religious links. Once again, like many of England’s castles, it came to rack and ruin in the 17th century however it remained of great interest, even having its own guidebook in the 18th century.
