Cholmondeley Castle’s annual fireworks’ extravaganza returns this summer accompanied by enthralling performances led by Manchester Camerata Orchestra. This year, a military theme will provide an additional twist to the entertainment.

Music will range from Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, 633 Squadron, Star Wars and Dambusters and will culminate in the traditional ‘Last night of the Proms’ style concert with the 1812 Overture accompanied by real cannon fire. Favourite tunes with a military theme plus much-loved traditional rousers are guaranteed to stir hearts, and the grand finale will be accompanied, as ever, by a stunning firework extravaganza! To help celebrate our British heritage, we invite you to fly the flag and enter into the spirit of the occasion with some audience participation.The breathtaking beauty of the Gothick Castle, set in picturesque grounds will provide the backdrop to this unmissable event.
