A magical evening of fire, flame, and gentle music in the grounds of the iconic Tintern Abbey

Spend time delighting in the Abbey Grounds illuminated with a thousand flickering candles and sculptures by fire specialists Pa-Boom. There will be live atmospheric music, and delicious and warming autumnal treats on site from local independent suppliers offering spiced winter warmers and hot chocolate. 

Doors open at 6pm. Last entry 9pm. Families/groups welcome. 

Pa-Boom are alchemists and artists, specialists in creating fire drawings, stunning sculptural bonfires, enchanting flame filled installations and unforgettable pyrotechnic displays.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see Tintern Abbey as never before – a magical night of fire, flame and music in a spectacular setting. This is a partnership between the WVRF and Cadw

  • The site is accessible, but it will be dark (except for the candles!) and there are some uneven sections, so please take care when traversing the site, and ask an usher for assistance if necessary.
  • There are toilets available in the Visitor Centre, including an accessible toilet. There are also public toilets available in the car park before entering the site.
  • There will be light refreshments available to buy but NO meals, so please plan accordingly.
