Set to be the biggest fireworks event we’ve hosted; Drayton Manor Park are proud to present Star Wars – The Force Awakens movie before the night ends with the annual firework and laser spectacular.

Our Firework Spectacular is going to be bigger and better than ever. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be screened at the park for the first time on an outdoor cinema screen within the park. Families will be able to relax and enjoy the film outdoors before the spectacular show concludes with a galactic firework and laser show set over the lake with brilliant lights and lasers.

Many rides will remain open, so the thrills can continue into the evening. Europe’s first stand-up rollercoaster, Shockwave, Air Race, which takes riders on an aerial adventure and the drop-tower Apocalypse, will be amongst those open until late.

For the younger visitors, there is Thomas Land™, home to over 25 rides and attractions based on the ever popular Thomas & Friends™ series, where families can enjoy a day out before heading to the main event.

Enjoy the last few days of the main season with us.
