We are delighted to announce that "Fireworks in Hemingford" is back with a bang for 2018 at the Big Field site on London Rd, St Ives, PE27 5ER and as before, the event will support many local charities! 

Come and join us at the area’s most spectacular fireworks and bonfire display, for an evening of family fun and to show your support for this amazing community event which has been running for over fifty years! 

A warm welcome awaits for 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!
