Wandsworth Council’s official display, and the biggest in South London, will brighten up the skies on two nights for 2023. Award-winning pyrotechnicians have crafted an impressive display, all set to music. As if that’s not enough, there will also be hot food, mulled wine and glow-in-the-dark face paint. Winning.
When to arrive
Gates open at 5pm on the Saturday, bonfire lighting is at 7:30pm and the fireworks begin at 8pm. On Sunday the event opens an hour earlier and has a more kid-friendly display, with a light show instead of a bonfire. The doors close at 8pm sharp, so don’t be late!
