Tring’s 50th annual Festival of Fire fireworks extravaganza will be happening on Saturday night.

Organisers have lined up three of the area’s best young bands to light up the stage at Tring Park Cricket Club.

Blind Summit, In General and The Reverie will be performing on stage either side of the spectacular fireworks display, which begins at 7pm.

Blind Summit is a newly formed band of current and former Tring School students, while In General are returning for their second Festival of Fire appearance.

The Reverie will close the show. Lead singer Dom Cox said: “It’s a top line up of local Tring talent and I’m sure all three bands will put on a rocking good show.”

Additionally, The Max Choir, AllStars Academy, the Court Youth Theatre, the Vivo Darte girls’ choir and a musical ensemble from Tring School will also be providing entertainment on the night.

Tickets can be bought from the Akeman, Sterling Estate Agents, Tring Brewery, Beechwood Fine Foods or behind the bar at the Cricket Club.

On the gate tickets are priced for families at £16, adults £6 and children under sixteen at £4. Under five year olds have free entry.
