Lambeth
Brockwell Park Firework Displays
Starts 5pm
Following its highly successful launch last year, the Lambeth Fireworks display will be even bigger and more spectacular this November. With the display being designed and created by finalists from the 2018 British Firework Championships, organisers Westworth Kemp are promising a Bonfire Night extravaganza to remember. Tickets are on sale now and expected to sell out fast, with a special Super Early Bird offer available until 16th September.
The theme for this year's main event is The Time Tunnel, featuring an incredible show of high octane pyrotechnics choreographed to some of the biggest anthems of the ‘80s right through to the present day. From Whitney Houston and Oasis, through to Blur, Beyonce and Ed Sheeran, the fast-paced music mix is sure to get everyone to sing along. The family event promises to be just as dynamic with a breathtaking display set to tracks from movie soundtrack favourites including The Greatest Showman, Moana, Frozen and Trolls.
From 5pm at Brockwell Park, consistently named one of London's best-loved and most picturesque parks, will be a funfair with rides for all ages and tempting food from over 30 food traders. There will also be bars serving refreshments across the event.
Everyone will be welcome to watch both displays with the family show kicking off at 6.45pm followed by the main display at 8pm. With only 30,000 tickets available, the event is expected to sell out fast. Early booking is recommended to secure a place and also take advantage of cheaper prices, with Super Early Bird tickets starting from just £3.00 for Kids and £6.50 for Adults. Family tickets are also available from £19 for a limited time only. Prices will then rise on 16th September. Children under 3 go free. Each ticket allows access to both displays.
