Halloween and Fireworks Extravaganza at Blists Hill

Date Posted: 19/06/2011

Blists Hill Victorian Town in the Ironbridge Gorge, Shropshire is set to host its popular Halloween event and Fireworks Extravaganza once again this year.

The Ghostly Gaslight Halloween event will take place on the 29th October, and visiting groups can look forward to mischievous antics, ghosts and ghouls amidst the spooky atmosphere of the Victorian town. Strange apparitions will replace the friendly Victorians who can usually be seen in the town’s shops, cottages and work place, and visitors are invited to come dressed in costume.

The Fireworks Extravaganza is set to take place on the evening of 5th November, and groups can enjoy a spectacular display over the Ironbridge Gorge. With the Victorian Town’s shops, cottages and workshops remaining open, and featuring a host of costumed characters, there will also be a display of iron working in Britain’s only working iron mill.
