Fireworks and Halloween combine for family fun

Day of the Dead Bonfire Party at Umberslade Farm Park.

Umberslade Farm Park, Tanworth in Arden, celebrates its thirtieth year with a Day of the Dead Family Bonfire and Fireworks Party on Thursday 31st October. Gates open at 4.30pm, the Umberslade Bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the firework display takes place at 7.30pm.

The Day of the Dead Bonfire Party will be a frightful delight for all the family. Expect fire dancers, day of the dead inspired stilt walkers and puppetry, and a live Mariachi band. Visitors can dance the night away with the Dead Famous Family Silent Disco – which plays the music of artists who are gone but not forgotten – or be entertained by some spooky story telling.

With day of the dead themed face painting and Halloween themed hands-on craft in the newly renovated play-barn and coffee barn, visitors can choose to follow the pumpkin trail across the Farm or dare to knock on the trick or treat doors. Keeping everyone warm and refreshed expect spooky street food and a licensed bar.

Oliver Muntz, Umberslade Farm Park said: “As it’s a special year for the Farm we wanted to have a Bonfire Night with a twist, an opportunity for visitors to the farm to experience something new as well as enjoying our annual bonfire and fireworks.

“We think our Day of the Dead Bonfire party will be a night to remember. And don’t forget if you come in fang-tastic fancy dress you will be in with a chance to win a Family Farm Pass!”

The Day of the Dead Family Bonfire and Firework Party opens at 4.30pm. Remember to dress for the weather and wear sensible footwear! Tickets are on sale now

Throughout October half-term Umberslade Farm Park is open daily from 10am. Children of all ages can enjoy a number of farm-based activities including pumpkin carving as well as opportunities to hold, feed and stroke a variety of animals at the working family farm.
