Royal Gunpowder Mills: Guy Fawkes Festival and Fireworks

Cancelled
2:00pm – 8:00pm
£8.10 – £10.50

If you want a bit more history in your gunpowder-related celebrations then why not head to the Royal Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey on the banks of the river Lea/ You can hear the famous tale of the Gunpowder plot in a real gunpowder factory. There is plenty of entertainment starting at 2 pm. From real musket firing and crafting sessions to science shows explaining how explosions work. There is also a short theatre production about the Stewarts—the ruling family of the time.

All activities are on a first-come-first-served basis so make sure you leave enough time to enjoy them all. The fireworks are provided by Force FX—a special effects company with a long history of providing displays for movies, tv and music festivals. The display will begin at 7 pm and last entry is likely to be at 6 pm—earlier if the reach capacity. So book ahead or arrive earlier if possible! Tickets cover entry into the interactive exhibition, the rocket vault and the armoury too.

Tickets can be purchased on the day but they may sell out, so purchase online to guarantee entry. Adult tickets are £10.50, children are £8.10 (under threes go free) and seniors/students/disabled entrants and carers are all £9.00. There are a range of family tickets available including single-parent tickets with reductions on regular prices.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
