Ally Pally Fireworks

Taking Bonfire night up a notch, the Ally Pally fireworks display has a lot more than rockets and catherin wheels on offer. With laser shows, fireworks, a German beer festival and a fire parade you’ll have a night you’ll be hard-pressed to forget. The event is so popular it’s running on two nights, with slightly earlier start times on the Saturday – park entry is open from 5pm Friday and 4pm Saturday. The bonfire will be lit at around 7pm (F)/6pm (S) and is a great place to keep warm while you await the fireworks. The display will be accompanied by a bespoke mix tape by DJ Yoda and preceded by a 30 minutes laser show, beginning at 8.30pm (F)/ 7.30pm (S). The annual parade is themed around the phoenix this year, with fire eaters, animatronics, flame jets, puppets, dancers and drummers amongst others – it takes place before the display.

There are extra events that require additional tickets including the The German Bier festival and ice skating. The Bier festival begins at 5pm (F)/4pm (S), with over 6000 revellers served by Bavarian waitresses and a host of musical entertainers taking to the stage. Ice skating is available throughout the day with an ice disco in the evening – additional tickets can be added at the online checkout.

Tickets are available online and although early bird tickets have sold out you can still purchase the regular £11 ones. Children between 11 and 15 are £8.50 and under 10s are free – but you do need to print a ticket for them, you can’t just turn up. Disabled tickets include an assistant ticket, disability parking and a special viewing spot.
