Head to Santa Pod Raceway for a fireworks frenzy drive-in on Friday 5th November from 5.30pm. The team have collaborated with top fireworks display company Titanium Fireworks to create one of Santa Pod’s biggest firework displays ever.

They have worked to design an all-aerial display with a wide frontage all the way along the spectator banking, meaning that everyone who comes will get a great view. There won’t be a bonfire this year, however, there will be side attractions including Red Dragon Monster Truck Rides, Inflatables & Go Karts plus Mini Monster Truck Mania for the little ones! Viewing will be from your vehicle or on the grandstand and parking will be on a first come first served basis. Head to to book your ticket.

The event starts at 6pm and will be on until 10.30pm. Tickets are £19.95 early bird and entry is free for under 5s.
