Caldicot Castle will host its annual fireworks spectacular on Sunday 3rd November, with gates opening at 4.30pm and a display lasting over 20 minutes starting at approximately 7pm. The annual event is ranked one of the top ten Welsh displays by media website WalesOnline.
Organised by Monmouthshire County Council, in association with the Monmouthshire Building Society, supported by Caldicot Town Council and community volunteer organisations, and in partnership with Capital FM, it attracts large crowds and has become increasingly popular. It’s no ordinary show, as the castle walls are a stunning backdrop to an astonishing spectacle of fireworks, music and incredible lights painting the night sky.
Tickets go on general sale from 14th October, costing £7.50 for adults and £4.50 for children, as well as further information, are available by visiting www.visitmonmouthshire. com/fireworks. Children under three get free entry but will still require a ticket to attend.
