West Midlands Safari Park Celebrates their 40th Anniversary with Firework Festival VIP, 9 November, 2013

Go wild and celebrate Guy Fawkes in style this year with a special VIP event held at Spring Grove House – the stunning mansion set in the grounds of West Midland Safari Park.

The event - on Saturday, 9th November 2013 - will also be staged in Cellarz, the below stairs venue located in Spring Grove House, with its unique styling and clandestine atmosphere.

The VIP package includes private car parking, access to Spring Grove House from 4.00pm, admission to West Midland Safari Park and attractions, an arrival drink, premium hog roast with a selection of accompaniments, salads and jacket potatoes and a multi-ride wristband for the amusement rides. VIP guests will be invited to join other guests in the public viewing area, a short walk from Spring Grove House, to enjoy the firework extravaganza that starts at 7.15pm.

As one of the largest firework displays in the West Midlands, the event has generated a dedicated following for over 30 years with a huge bonfire and firework display, which this year is accompanied by music spanning four decades - the year that has seen West Midland Safari Park celebrate its 40th Anniversary.

And, for a limited period only, a saving of 20% can be made off published prices, bringing prices down to £29.56 for adults (13 years+) and £23.50 for children (3-12 years). Visitors should be aware that the animal reserves will be closed on 9th November 2013.
