The final night of the 2017 Matlock Bath Illuminations (Saturday 28 October) is a sell-out. No tickets left unfortunately. Don't let that stop you visiting fantastic Matlock Bath however - and you'll be able to see the 9pm fireworks finale from the village.
This year adults pay £5.50 on Saturdays and £4.50 on Sundays if they buy online in advance - that's 50p cheaper than last year. Accompanied under 16s continue to be free, with concessions available for disabled people and OAPs.
People who buy on the night will pay £7.50 on Saturdays and £6.50 on Sundays - £2 more expensive than the online prices. Please note we cannot guarantee tickets will be available on the night.

The District Council has acted on feedback from a customer survey conducted after last year's eight-week spectacular. Every Saturday in 2017 will include a fireworks finale, with numbers in Derwent Gardens restricted to a maximum of 6,000 - down from 8,000 in previous years - to improve crowd movement and enjoyment for visitors.
To enhance the reputation of Sundays as a "family night", the event will start and finish earlier, running from 6-8pm to take account of the fact that younger visitors have school the following morning.
Other improvements for the 2017 Illuminations - the 120th - include better signage to the park and ride service, more stewards and more enforcement officers to police pedlars on the streets of Matlock Bath.
