COVID-19 announcement - We are following government advice carefully and not making any decisions on 2020 just yet. If we need to postpone or move any 2020 event(s) we will validate your tickets for use at any single event in the next 2 years. Take care, stay safe. Thanks for the support - we know how keen people are to attend.
Eastnor Castle is the setting for the event, a stately home set in the Hereford countryside. Why not enjoy the landscape and isolated atmosphere with a picnic and fireworks. The site is many acres in size and although we provide and install lighting it is not possible to light the entire site. Please bring a torch.
Eastnor lies between the Cotswolds and the Welsh Marches. The Castle is 2½ miles east of Ledbury on the A438 Tewkesbury road.
