Get down to south London for the capital’s biggest free fireworks display. Around 100,000 people attend every year. The event is free, courtesy of Lewisham council, though donations are always encouraged. There’s currently word that this year’s event could be the last (or even be cancelled) due to budget cuts. So there’s never been a better time to go (and again, maybe donate).
All being well, there’ll be a funfair open from 12 pm, and food and drink stalls open from 5pm. should you wish to watch the display while spinning on the waltzer! Entertainment begins from 5pm, but the actual display will be at 8 pm, and should last around 15 minutes). Just be sure to check the official website for updates before you make your way over.
