The Gunpowder Plot – Boughton House – November 4th and 5th 2016

4th November 2016 - 5th November 2016

Spectacular fireworks, great food, comedy fire acts, choir recitals, free parking and of course a spectacular performance that retells the story of the Gunpowder Plot set against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful stately homes in the country.

THE GUNPOWDER PLOT is a great night out for all the family. Book Tickets now to avoid disappointment – limited audience capacity.

Through breath taking performance, projection and original soundtrack, experience the full story behind one of the most dramatic plots ever conceived, hear all about Northamptonshire’s unique links to the plot, and discover why Boughton House really is the home of Bonfire Night. Gunpowder Treason and Plot is a cultural outdoor spectacular designed for those who want something more explosive for their bonfire night celebrations.

Event traffic routes will be in place. Please leave approx 30 minutes extra to follow signage into the Boughton estate. Satnavs use NN14 3AG and ensure that you follow the event signage as you get closer to the Boughton Estate. Other entrances to the site will not be in use.

Tickets can be collected on site, but to bypass the queue we recommend that you try and get them in advance. If it’s not possible please don’t worry, we will have everything ready to collect.

This is an outdoor event and is standing only. Sensible footwear and warm clothing is a must. We are all hoping for clear weather but it is still a November night on a rural stately home estate so please dress accordingly. Maybe get a hot chocolate when you arrive. It’s more fun when you are warm! No chairs or picnics can be brought into the grounds for this event.

Thank you again for booking with us and we hope you have a good evening. There will be parking attendants and stewards on site so if you need any help while you are with us please just ask. We look forward to seeing you and we hope that you have a really enjoyable time with us!

Best wishes from the Gunpowder Plotters!
