McFly Longleat fireworks

  1. Top British pop rock band McFly were on hand to officially launch the Fireworks Extravaganza at Longleat Safari & Adventure Park last Friday 4th November.
    The band spent the day at Longleat experiencing the attractions which included tours through new attractions Jungle Kingdom, Monkey Temple and Animal Adventure.Band members Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter were all on hand to meet a variety of the park’s residents and were certainly not shy when handling Snakes, Spiders and other creepy crawlies!

    A VIP Tour of the Safari Park followed, where they were lucky enough to see some of the lion cubs recently born before going on a Ghost Tour of Longleat House.

    McFly were without drummer Harry Judd who was on dance rehearsals as he is currently starring in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

    They finished the day by meeting fans who had turned up to see them at the fireworks before giving a countdown to get the display underway for the many spectators who had turned up.

    Longleat Steve Mytton said “It was great to have the boys down here to start the fireworks and also for them to see the great attractions we have to offer here. I don’t think they expected to be getting so close to some of our animals!”

    “It’s the first time we’ve had a dedicated fireworks display at Longleat and the addition of Mcfly coming to help start them really was an added treat for visitors who were here for the performance. It was great to see the band meeting and spending time with fans before the display got started too.”

    Although the fireworks brought an end to the main open season at Longleat it will soon be the venue for a Christmas Spectacular for the first time ever. Running from November 18th until January 2nd Christmas at Longleat brings together the magic of the festive season in a spectacular new event.

    Visitors will have the chance to enjoy the experience of skating on real ice on a huge outdoor ice rink in front of Longleat House, watch favourite fairy-tale characters come to life in the enchanted surroundings of Longleat House and marvel at the giant singing Christmas tree with hundreds of lights dancing in time to festive tunes.

    Plus there’s the opportunity to take an unforgettable train journey deep into the woods to meet Santa Claus himself in his snowy log cabin home.

    Did you see McFly at Longleat last weekend?
