People standing looking at a sculpture lit up with flames


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.

Tickets available here.

" An enchanting, evocative and enlivening experience…"

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

WVRF has worked with Dave Chadwick's Pa-Boom for a number of years – who remembers the amazing stag's head and pyro display that closed the 2018 festival? This is very likely to be the last performance they will ever do in the Valley – or anywhere. Beyond the flaming beacons, retirement beckons… So don't miss this opportunity to see Tintern Abbey as never before – a magical night of fire, flame and music in a spectacular setting. We are delighted to be presenting this work in partnership with Cadw.

Please see below for more event information.
