One of Cheshire’s leading firework displays is back with a bang on Saturday 26 October.

In an explosion of sound and colour, the Canal & River Trust’s iconic Anderton Boat Lift, known as the ‘Cathedral of the Canals’ will be staging its annual musical firework display against the dramatic backdrop of the picturesque River Weaver. Blitz Fireworks, one of the country’s top multi award-winning firework teams, aims to exceed even last year’s extraordinary display.

On the night, gates open at 6.30pm and family fun will include a number of exciting fairground rides as well as the opportunity to buy affordable and tasty food. Big savings can be made by pre-booking advanced tickets online at

This event has been sponsored by David Wilson Homes.

Special pre-booked tickets cost just £7.50 for adults, £5.50 for children and £22 for a family (two adults plus two children). All under three year olds go free but will still require a ticket. On the night, gate price will be £9.50 for adults, £6.50 for children and £24 for a family ticket.

Multi award-winning pyrotechnic team, Blitz Fireworks from Crewe, who are known for the excellence of their synchronised musical display, will as in previous years be setting off the fireworks from floating pontoons in the River Weaver.

This technical challenge means visitors get an enhanced experience because they can watch the fireworks reflected in the glittering water from the lawned terraces of the Boat Lift.

As well as enjoying the fairground rides and play area, children can buy a series of imaginative glow-in-the-dark toys and gadgets. Delicious, freshly prepared, affordable food, including burgers, hot dogs and chips will be available on the night and there will be a fully licensed bar in the Lift View Marquee.
