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.
