Lowther Firework Night
Last year we catered with Thai street food at Lowther firework night and we are returning on the 2nd & 3rd November along with other street food caterers to this amazing event.
Lowther Castle is the most amazing backdrop for pyrotechnics of all kinds. This year, the event will feature fire displays throughout the garden and a showstopping routine of sky-high explosions as a climax to the evening.
The event usually starts about 5pm and lasts until the last firework has lit up the sky in an amazing display of colour.
History of Lowther Castle
Of the many treasures waiting to be discovered in the English Lake District, Lowther Castle is a particular gem. Built at the turn of the 19th century, on the site of two previous houses, the castle was a grand affair boasting a room for every day of the year. Its gardens were the envy of the north. But in 1957 the castle was demolished. Just the façade and outer walls remained standing and for over half a century, the place was empty – home only to chickens, pigs and the odd bat. The gardens were lost to wilderness.
Seventy years on from its demolition, Lowther Castle is now one of the most intriguing visitor attractions in the country. Indeed it was voted Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2018 in the Cumbria Tourism Awards.
