Water Show Extravaganza

Watermouth Castle Water Show Extravaganza

Take your seats for the breathtakingly beautiful performance of lights, music and fountains in the famous underground Water Show Extravaganza.

Built originally for the 1951 Festival of Britain on the South Bank of the Thames, the water show was installed at Watermouth Castle during the early ‘Eighties’, and has been synchronised to music played by the Mighty Mortier Organ built by Theo Mortier, in the 1920’s.

Technically known as a ‘Mortier 101 Key’, the organ contains over 500 pipes and reeds, and cards containing 101 punched holes which select the sequences for the music, water and lights to give a perfectly synchronised and spectacular display.
