Firework Extravaganza - where to go!

Updated: Oct 22, 2020



It actually may be our favourite time of year. When things are all cosy and you can wrap up in a silly amount of layers. Bonfire Night is a celebration primarily in the UK and every year we put on fireworks displays across the country in all their magnificent form pulling out all the stops with the most show stopping production with lasers evolving over the years. They are always so much better than our disappointing own attempts of a few pops in the garden.


We are gutted to hear some of our favourite annual displays will not be going ahead this year, but we love fireworks and we will find a way to still get our fix of sparklers and bailey’s hot choc. Lo and behold the drive-in fireworks, imagine all the usual perks of the night minus the cold and standing up.


With the cancellations of many of the usual displays, these are set to be a sell-out so book those tickets! Get ready to join us in awe with a night full of ‘ahhhhhs’ and ‘ooooohs’.


*Check before you travel, lots of changes constantly happening!

Lincoln Drive-in

Sat 7th November 2020


Autumn Lights are coming to Lincoln. The fabulous Lincolnshire Showground usually hosts an extravaganza for bonfire night, and we are glad to hear it is still going ahead (drive-in style). The evening includes fire shows and a unique spectacle of light

with hot air balloons lit up in the night sky.

St.Albans

Sat 7th November 2020


The city is planning to go ahead with a public display but instead, they have re-imagined the event so that audience can watch and admire from their doorsteps as the fireworks are let off high in the sky for everyone to see. If it’s too cold on the night, it can also be watched live from YouTube on the sofa. Sounds tempting!
