Lowther Castle near Penrith hosted a spectacular fireworks display and evening of entertainment for Bonfire Night on Sunday 4 November, which saw tickets sell out a week in advance.

The evening saw fire and pyrotechnic displays, a huge bonfire, family lantern-making workshops, stilt walkers and a firelight parade through the illuminated woodlands and ancient gardens, led by drummers and giant puppets rounded off by truly amazing fireworks coming out of the gothic ruins of Lowther Castle, in Cumbria – the Lake District.

Astral Circus’ quirky stilt-walking characters were a hit with the kids, and pyrotechnics from the Circus and from Fire Man Dave wowed the crowd. Visitors enjoyed music from the Kookaburra All Stars and The Farmer of Funk,while enjoying street food and hot tipples.

Claire Logan-Stephens, Head of Marketing, Events and Groups at Lowther Castle said: “We’ve been receiving some lovely feedback for the first Bonfire Night which the team at Lowther Castle have organised and people travelled from as far afield as Glasgow and Manchester for the evening. We would like to thank all the participants who helped create such a magical atmosphere on the night.”
