Remember remember the fifth of November
‘Royal Night Out’ is this year’s theme for the Battersea Park Fireworks and will include music and laser effects. The event is taking place on Saturday 7 November.
Often cited as one of London’s most spectacular displays, the popular event can hold 50,000 people, and tickets are expected to sell out. You must buy tickets in advance – they are not available on the gate.
This year the display, sponsored by Berkeley Vista, will be again fired by award-winning pyro-technicians Jubilee Fireworks and will be set to music. This year there will be more food stalls than ever, including new street food pop-ups, and three bars will be offering mulled wine and other refreshments throughout the evening. Glow products for children will be on sale.
Wandsworth’s culture spokesman, Cllr Jonathan Cook, said:
“Battersea Park is one of London’s most impressive open spaces, and it’s the perfect setting for one of London’s most spectacular firework displays.
“This year’s event promises to be better than ever, and I would urge people to avoid disappointment by buying their ticket as soon as possible.”
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster (booking fees apply) and in person from the Millennium Arena in Battersea Park from next week.
They are priced to reward early buyers. From October 7 to November 6 they are £8. On November 7 they are £10.
Tickets must be bought online in advance – none will be available for sale on the gate. There is no charge for children aged under 10, but they will still require a free ticket.
Visitors are not permitted to bring in animals, fireworks, sparklers or glass containers.
The gate, bar and foot court open at 6pm. The fireworks are due to start at 8pm. There will be no admittance to the park after 8pm.
