Fireworks celebration on St Michael's Mount

12 August 2014

St Michael’s Mount is a unique partnership between the National Trust and the St Aubyn family, working together to support the Mount’s vibrant island community and continuing a remarkable legacy of life and activity which has existed since prehistoric times.

The National Trust has owned most of the island and the causeway since 1954 as a result of a gift by the St Aubyn family, who have lived in the castle since the 1650s and still do so today.  The National Trust are responsible for the conservation and upkeep of St Michael’s Mount and the St Aubyn family run the Mount day to day, opening it to the public and welcoming visitors to discover their extraordinary island home. 2014 marked the 60th anniversary of this special gift and on 12 August a Firework Spectacular took place in Mounts Bay celebrating the partnership.  

This dazzling and colourful bespoke event, staged with St Michael’s Mount as its dramatic backdrop, was designed to be viewed from the mainland in Marazion and commenced as dusk fell filling the skies of Mounts Bay and Marazion with a vibrant and colourful display.

Do watch the video of this incredible event which will be rememberd for many years to come.
