It’s time for the big bang folks – don’t miss out on some of the top displays.
There are some fantastic, well organsied, large scale local displays so here’s a quick round up of where to head…
LIVE ACTION FIREWORK THEATRE @ SPRINGFIELDS
Springfields has a unique fireworks event this year on Friday November 1, which also marks their Christmas lights switch on.
You’ll never see a firework display like this, it’s the UK’s first ever firework theatre show combining a specially made big screen movie, live stunt performances, choreographed fireworks set to blockbuster film tunes and a grand finale with the lights switch on!
It’s all happening at the outlet shopping centre in Spalding and advance tickets are available online at www.springfieldsshopping.com and the information centre. Or they’ll be £9 for adults and £6 for children on the gate.
The Peterborough Lions’ Fireworks Extravaganza is always a corker and this year there’s a concert afterwards to keep the night going strong on Friday November 1.
Peterborough’s only multimedia display includes lasers, a 10ft high water water video screen and special effects. The gates open at Bretton Park at 6pm, fireworks at 7.30pm and the bands start at 8.15pm with music from The Acoustic Twins (Classic rock, 60s, 70s) and The Gangsters. There’ll be a fun fair, stalls, cheap bar, BBQ, food and entertainment.
There’ll be a number of concert only tickets released on the gates at 8pm.
Ticket prices are £5 adult, £2 child, £12 family (2 adults and 2 children) and £3 concert only. The event’s raising money for the new sports village planned at Bretton Park.
Tickets are available on www.pdcfireworks.oco.uk and can also be bought direct from Sainsbury’s in Bretton. Find out more on Twitter @PboroFireworks
Live music returns with a bang to the Peterborough Arena on Saturday November 2, thanks to Firework Fiesta! As well as the oohs and the aahs of the region’s premier firework display, there’ll be plenty of noise to support another evening of live music at the East of England Showground.
Performing during the event are local singer Peter Jay, ABBA tribute band Abbalarf and former Sugababes singer Amelle Berrabah as well as urban pop duo GTF who are making a welcome return to the venue having supported Peter Andre at last month’s concert!
There’ll also be food outlets, trade and charity stalls, ample free parking and a large fairground. The event will be compered by Heart FM’s Kev and Ros and the ESP crew will be there too capturing the action. All proceeds from the 38th annual Firework Fiesta will be ploughed back into Peterborough-based charities and good causes. So get down to the Peterborough Arena for an evening of pyrotechnic prowess and excellent entertainment!
Advance tickets are priced £7 adults and £3 children (£10 and £5 respectively on the night). Ticket outlets in Peterborough; Van Hage, Destination Centre, The Cresset, Queensgate, Notcutts, Ferry Meadows visitor centre and caravan park – as well as online from the Ticket Factory.
