Fire Garden

Friday 11th Oct 2019 — Sunday 13th Oct 2019, Market Place, Newbury and St Nicolas' Church

Free (no booking required)

The streets of Newbury will be transformed by fire as we celebrate ten years of outdoor events.

A spectacular successor to our popular Ablaze fire installation on the Kennet and Avon canal in 2013, we are thrilled to present a beautiful and truly spellbinding way to celebrate ten years of the Corn Exchange's amazing outdoor events programme.

Legendary French fire artists Carabosse come to Newbury to transform the familiar landscape of the town's streets and squares into a magical and mesmeric wonderland of flickering flames. As much alchemists as artists, Carabosse have travelled the world, never failing to enchant audiences from the very young to the very old.

Come and wander the streets amidst thousands of clay fire pots, suspended illuminations and ingenious kinetic sculptures; sit, watch and listen as live music and beautiful firelight provide truly magical moments that will change the way you feel about the town forever.

Join us at any time between 7.30pm and 10.30pm. No booking is required.

This FREE event features static fire installations that you can navigate around at your own pace.
