With lots to see and do all afternoon, come along early to make the most of your day! From 2pm onwards you can see a short theatre production – ‘The Ghost of Guy Fawkes’* and Professor Nitrate is back in the Mad Lab with interactive shows explaining the science of explosions! Plus, there are hands on and take home activities such as Slime making and Lantern making!

A tractor trailer guided tour is a wonderful opportunity to explore the history of our 300 year old site, which was once a Gunpowder factory, for a nominal fee. These leave at 2:30pm and 3:30pm - weather permitting. There are also our Rocket Vault, Armoury, and Exhibitions that reveal the stories and science behind our Gunpowder heritage!

As darkness falls you can warm up with some hot food from our Gunpowder Café and selection of Food Stalls. On both Saturday and Sunday festivities conclude with an archery display from ‘The Royal Golden Eagle Medieval Archers’ and an epic fireworks display at 7pm from ForceFX, the company behind the special effects of movies, TV, and music festivals.

LAST ENTRY = 6pm - but gates will close earlier if we reach capacity. Book in advance online to ensure entry!
