Bonfire night is fast approaching, which means spectacular fireworks displays, and annoying ones from your neighbours, will be filling the sky over the next week. But it would seem this Saturday is the big day for most firework celebrations, at least that is the case for our top picks across the city
Battersea power station is working with Wandsworth council for this year’s Battersea Park Fireworks. This year’s event is expected to welcome 50,000 people and will offer spectators a 22-minute show like no other from award-winning pyrotechnicians, Jubilee Fireworks. For those looking for somewhere to warm up before or after the fireworks display, Circus West Village is only a short walk from Battersea Park under Chelsea Bridge and offers a mix of independent cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.
Blackheath Fireworks 2019
Blackheath Fireworks 2019
Blackheath Fireworks will light up the sky once again on November 2. The spectacular aerial display will be at 8pm and last about 15 minutes. From noon you can enjoy the funfair, and from 5pm for a variety of food stalls and bars. The event is the biggest free display in London and the annual event has been going for more than 30 years. It regularly attracts more than 80,000 people. Visitors are encouraged to help keep the event going by donating to the Blackheath Fireworks 2019 crowdfunder campaign and in buckets on the night.
Crystal Palace Fireworks
Crystal Palace Fireworks will light up South London for an evening of dazzling, family-friendly entertainment. Alongside breathtaking fireworks and laser display, the event will feature an out-of-this-world show from Arcadia’s Lord of Lightning – shooting lightning bolts at different frequencies from their bodies and playing an electric symphony through musical lightning, a variety of street food traders, live entertainment, and a fairground throughout to keep the
whole family entertained.
All eyes and ears will be on the park in Hammersmith this year as the Bishop’s Park display will not take place due to building works at nearby Craven Cottage. Ravenscourt Park fireworks on Saturday will have two big moments – the children’s display and the main display. The fun starts from 4pm with the fun fair, as well as a host of food stalls and bars. There will be live music, fire performers, a funfair, food stalls and new bars serving up a wider selection of drinks
