It’s that time of year again where the sun is setting earlier and we are wrapping up warmer; one of the benefits of this is the many brilliant Firework displays which occur throughout North Wales during the autumn season. Here at the Bryn Tyrch Inn we are situated in the village of Capel Curig which means we are not only a Hotel, B&B and Restaurant, but we are also on the doorstep of some must-see displays in Betws y Coed, Snowdonia and North Wales.

There will be a Spectacular Aerial Firework Display which is organised annually by the Conwy Valley Rotary Club. The Club spends their time helping the communities by organising events, fundraisers and more. The 20 members have paired with Lightech, an Award Winning Pyrotechnic Company, to put on a fantastic display for anyone in the area to attend. In addition to the firework display, there will be a range of other activities for all to take part in. If you’re a fan the fairground, you won’t be disappointed as there will be a wide range of thrilling rides. There will also be a variety of hot food and drinks available throughout the night.

The Rotary Spectacular Aerial Firework Display is a free to attend event which will take place on Friday 10th November. There is free parking with fireworks beginning at 7pm so make sure to wrap up warm!

For more firework excitement, why not watch last year’s display below which was a huge hit with visitors who said “Fantastic display it gets better every year thank you” and “Another fantastic evening at the 2016 Llanrwst fireworks display, a job well done by all involved”.

Fireworks have been a tradition throughout the country for over 400 years, celebrating the failure of a gunpowder plot. Known as Guy Fawkes Night, Fawkes was arrested whilst protecting the gunpowder beneath the House of Lords. Although the Chinese initially created fireworks, they were seen as a medicine to fight evil. Italy was the first to use fireworks for celebration purposes and therefore they are widely accredited for producing the first firework. In the 14th Century, fireworks first entered the United Kingdom for the celebration of King Henry V11s Wedding. Today, fireworks can be seen throughout the world in the month of November with each year seemingly bigger and more extravagant.
