Our Bonfire and fireworks viewing area will be clearly indicated on our directional boards throughout the farm park.
There will be loud noise (and music) for the fireworks display – the show will contain loud noise, fireworks, and flashing lights when viewed from the viewing areas. We recommend ear defenders for small children and those who are sensitive to loud noises.
The accessible viewing area will be located further from the speakers so will be quieter than the main viewing area, however, we would still recommend ear defenders for children who are sensitive to loud noises. Should you require assistance please make a member of the team aware.
The fireworks can be viewed from across the site, where it will be quieter – however, the story, lighting, and synchronization to music will only be viewable from the main viewing area.
The bonfire will be located at the bottom of the main viewing area and can be viewed (from a distance) from the accessible viewing area.
Wheelchair access – the main areas of the site are formulated from tarmac and hardcore, however, this is a working farm and some areas (including the main viewing area and secret garden) are graveled. There is an accessible viewing area, however, due to the nature of the site, this can get muddy in adverse weather – however, we will do all we can to make this as accessible as possible
