2. Catch the West End Fire Festival
As well as its gorgeous river views, Orleigh Park is also known for its legendary fire festival, which has taken place on the night of each full moon since 2006. The fire twirling and spinning is truly a sight worth seeing and an experience to remember.
The festival attracts a crowd, but it’s not too crowded: just the right number of people to have a fun atmosphere and meet some interesting people.
The festival takes place from 7pm to 10pm at Orleigh Park, and is hosted by the Firetricks community, who are a group of dedicated circus performers and fire-twirlers; however, beginners are most welcome to try their hand at fire-twirling too!
