Windmill Lodges puts the spotlight on five spectacular firework shows to visit this year with your family and friends. These are all within 45 minutes of our beautiful self-catering log cabins, and are suitable for young children, so the whole family can get involved. If you are interested in staying with us next year over this period, these are a few ideas of what you can expect to see in the surrounding area, as all the events tend to be run annually.
This year Heveningham Hall is hosting a huge show for all ages to enjoy, featuring fireworks, a funfair, live music and even spark fire dancers. This is a 1920s themed fire show with acrobatics, fire stunts and gangsters. Based on the famous Cirque Du Soleil, it is guaranteed to be breath-taking. Heveningham is only a 30 minute drive away from our wooden cabins, so it is easily accessed. This event, on Saturday 7th November, starts at 5.30pm, and there will be a variety of food and drink to choose from, including a hog roast, fish and chips, candy floss, and, for the adults, there will be mulled wine to get you into the winter spirit.
Pageant field, Framlingham, will be lit up on Saturday 7th November during their incredible fireworks display, featuring special effects, sparklers and an enormous bonfire. Entry costs £6 for adults and £4 for children on the night, and is just a nine minute drive from our self-catering log cabins. This is ideal for families with young children, as you will easily be able to get them to bed afterwards without the need for a long journey home. You might even be able to see these fireworks from our wooden lodges, making for a magical evening whilst you enjoy a soak in our family hot tubs.
Slightly earlier than some of the other events, Christchurch Park hosts a huge Halloween themed night on Saturday 31st October. Here, your children can transform themselves into terrifying creatures to take part in the biggest fancy dress party the park has ever thrown. There will also be a funfair here, with lots of food and a licenced bar for the adults. This night will be made extra spooky by the zombie procession, which will travel through the park. The park opens at 6pm, and closes at 10pm, and is just a 30 minute drive from our lodges. Leave yourself plenty of time to get here. Parking gets very busy due to it being a hugely popular occasion.
On Friday 30th October, Stonham Barns will let off fireworks to music, during which your children can take part in many Halloween themed games, such as a fancy dress and pumpkin carving competition. The best pumpkin and costume will win a prize, so make sure you’re creative. This is just a 15 minute drive from our log cabins, and starts at 4pm.
Enjoy a stunning view of the sea while the sky is lit up above you during the annual Felixstowe Firework Show on Sunday 1st November. This year the football club has teamed up with the carnival team to bring you a dazzling 20 minute show, all fired to music. Here you can enjoy an array of delights including a funfair, food and sideshows. The gates open at 4.30pm, and the fireworks begin at 6.30pm, and due to Felixstowe being just a 30 minute drive away from our gorgeous self-catering log cabins, you’ll be home in time to put any young children to bed.
