Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival 2023

4:00pm – 11:00pm
£15.50 (advance sales)

Taking Bonfire night up a notch, the Ally Pally fireworks display has been running for over 150 years, and has a lot more than rockets and Catherine wheels on offer.

What to expect at the Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival 2022

With fireworks, a bonfire, laser show, German bier festival with an Elvis tribute show, family funfair, film screenings, fire juggling, an ice disco and Gok Wan DJing, you’ll have a night you’ll be hard-pressed to forget.

Park entry is open from 4pm. The bonfire will be lit in the lower field at around 6 pm and is a great place to keep warm while you await the fireworks. The lazer and fireworks show begins at about 8pm. The Family Friendly Area and Streatlife Village are back this year and bigger than ever. Both have good food to enjoy as well as comedy, acitivities and music on show.

London’s biggest bier festival

The Bier Festival begins at 4pm, with over 6000 revellers being served by waitresses in (no doubt inaccurate) Bavarian costumes. A host of musical entertainers will take to the stage, including an Elvis tribute act.

Ice Skating on Bonfire Night

Ice skating is available from around 4:15 pm, with an ice disco in the evening. Everything should be wrapped up by 10:45 pm—just enough to rush from a last train home. Tickets for ice skating can be added at the online checkout (details below).

Film Screenings

The Victorian cinema is cosy for the family-friendly screening of The Lego Movie at 5:45pm but decidedly more spooky for the 9pm screening of Shaun of the Dead. Tickets can be added to the fireworks entry ticket.

Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival tickets

Tickets are available online with a regular adult ticket priced at £15.50. Children between 11 and 15 are £11.50 while under 10s are £3.50. Tickets for the accessible viewing area include an assistant ticket, accessible parking and a special viewing spot for the same price as regular admission.

If you want to access the bier festival or do some ice skating, you’ll need an additional ticket on top of the general admission fireworks ticket. Bier festival tickets are 18+ only, will cost you an additional £19.00, and don’t guarantee a seat—so do what the Germans do and turn up early! Ice skating tickets are split into two 90 minute sessions, and a later two-hour session. The two-hour session tickets are a little more expensive than the earlier sessions.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
