Bishops Park display – Friday 2 November
Ravenscourt Park display – Saturday 3 November
Events include – bars, food vendors, funfair and firework displays
For both events:
Event time – 6pm-9.30pm
Children’s display – 7.15pm
Main display – 8pm
Gates close at 8pm to give us time to clear the way for people who want to leave after the main display has taken place.
For this reason, there is strictly no admittance to anyone (including advanced ticket holders) after 8pm.
There will only be a small number of tickets available to buy on the night at the box office. Queues for the box office are usually longer than advanced ticket holder queues.
To guarantee entry and avoid queues on the night please buy your tickets in advance and arrive early.
Tickets available to purchase from www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
- £6 Early Bird tickets (available to purchase until 21 October 2018)
- £8 Advance tickets (available to purchase from 22 October to 3 November 2018)
- £8 box office tickets at the gates
Limited tickets will be available to buy on the night, but the best way to guarantee entry and avoid the queue for the box office is to buy your tickets in advance.
Admission is free for children under five, and also for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues and their helper.
This year’s heartfelt theme 'Love' will see the fireworks displays being accompanied by a soundtrack of some of the greatest love songs ever recorded, including Florence + the Machine’s smash hit ‘You’ve Got the Love’ and Bob Marley’s ‘Could You Be Loved’.
There will be a funfair, food stalls and new bars serving up a wider selection of drinks than ever before. And for the first time, there will be no need to go looking for a cashpoint as you will be able to pay by card at the bar, food stalls and ticket box office.
