Matlock Bath Illuminations boat

Book online now for our 2015 season(Please select the 'Other Payments' option)

Matlock Bath Illuminations feature a unique parade of illuminated and decorated boats on the River Derwent every weekend throughout September and October. Each boat carries a decorated model and as darkness falls the boats disappear into the blackness below, leaving the models apparently gliding along just above the water. On the above Saturday nights there are also spectacular firework displays.

2015 Season


Matlock Bath Illuminations will run every Saturday and Sunday evening from 12 September until the 31 October.

Fireworks nights will take place every Saturday evening from 19 September through to Halloween night on 31 October.

Please keep an eye on this page during the summer for information on the entertainment schedule, illuminated boat displays and firework times.
