Remember, remember the Fifth of November…

Start your weekend off with a bang as the area’s most spectacular musical fireworks and bonfire display return for an evening of family fun. 

This historic event, running for over 50 years, brings together the local community to enjoy the colours, the sounds and the explosions in the sky.

This spectacular show is provided by award-winning Cambridge Fireworks, winner of the 2018 Fireworks Championship held at Eastnor Castle and Ragley Hall! With such credentials, you’re always guaranteed a world-class display. Alongside the bonfire and rockets, we’ll also have our traditional funfair, street food vans, DJs and other entertainment all brought together to help benefit the community.

A warm welcome awaits the whole family from the cosy crackle of the bonfire and the whoosh-flash bang of the rockets, plus stalls, traditional fairground rides and a wonderful range of delicious food and enticing beverages. We can’t wait to see you there!
