Celestial returns for Close Encounters of the Frome Kind

Local company Celestial will be returning to Frome’s skies this November for a spectacular ‘lightworks’ show in partnership with Frome Town Council. The show is due to take place on Saturday 4th November from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Old Showfield, complete with hundred of drones and epic show lighting, as well as other attractions and local food vendors. Not only is this fantastic event a nod to the possibility of life beyond our planet, but it also celebrates our local community by bringing together the people and local businesses that make Frome unique.

“Close Encounters of the Frome Kind” is an extra-terrestrial extravaganza that aims to celebrate the colourful character and the quirk of Frome with its blend of innovative drone light show technology, UFO intrigue and a touch of celestial magic.  The show is designed and delivered by local company Celestial who, since their last Frome display (the first with a live audience), has gone from strength to strength delivering super-premium shows all over the world for some of the biggest brands, including Eurovision, London New Year’s Eve and many more.

This event will be free, and as such there will be a suggested donation amount of £5 in order to support and give back to our local community. Frome Rotary will be collecting the donations and partnering with local charities such as The Pod and Fair Frome – the last Celestial drone event saw the largest ever amount of donations collected and distributed by Frome Rotary, so please give generously if you are able to, to help raise even more this year.

Due to the nature of this event, there will be no parking available at the site and as such, priority booking with be given to Frome residents – please walk where at all possible and if you need to park, please use the town centre car parks. Only blue badge holders will have access to car parking – please book your space and produce your badge on entrance. The event is a family event and alcohol free, so please don’t bring any of your own alcohol and instead make use of the brilliant local food and drink vendors that will be available to you on site.
