If you are looking for a Bonfire Night display in London, then look no further. Many displays went ahead at the weekend, but unfortunately due to bad weather a number were cancelled. However, many are taking place on Bonfire Night this Tuesday. Depending on where you are in London, you can choose from any of them going on in and around the city. You will need to pay for tickets but there are some which are completely FREE!
Tuesday 5th November:
Southwark Park, South London
Southwark Park fireworks display is free for local residents but advance tickets are required. A full winter fireworks experience will be on offer with drinks and snacks too.
- Gates open at 5 pm, last entry 6.30 pm
- Adult tickets £8.50 (non-residents)
Wimbledon Park Bonfire & Fireworks twins with Morden Park bonfire event, which took place at the weekend. Flame OZ and Halo will be performing a warm up act before the main fireworks display.
Tickets need to be bought in advance rather than being able to buy them at the park. A child-friendly fireworks display will be first, with the second set to music starting later. Giving you time to race back home.

- Adult tickets £8.50
Thursday 7th November:
Chiswick Park, West London
Chiswick Park will be hosting their firework display from 7pm, with everything opening at 5pm. It’s one of the few free firework displays on offer in London on Bonfire night.
Shooting Star Children’s Hospices will be hosting the Fire Walk at 6pm. If you have always wanted to brave walking across burning embers then sign up for £25 (cheaper than Tony Robbins) – proceeds will go to charity.

Saturday 9th November
Highgate Fireworks Festival, North London
Highgate Fireworks Festival this Saturday will host a family-friendly display from 4pm-6.30pm (fireworks at 6pm) and a musical fireworks display wfrom 7pm-9.30pm (fireworks at 9pm).
I am really liking the sound of this one. Entertainment includes a glitter bar, disco hosted by a top DJ, bumper cars and a ferris wheel. Food includes the liked of Cheeky Burger, Born & Raised Pizza and Matilda’s Waffles. No ticket sales on the gate, so make sure you book before you go.
- Family-friendly display starts 4 pm with fireworks 6 pm
- Musical fireworks display 7 pm with fireworks 9 pm
- Tickets £15 – proceeds go to charities Grief Encounter & Noah’s Ark
Barnes Sports Club, West London
Gates open at 5:30pm with the bonfire at 7pm, then fireworks starting at 7:45pm. What I am liking about this event is the hot mulled wine, BBQ burgers and hot dogs and a large bar area. A late-night disco carries on with music from DJ Disco Danger after the fireworks for people who don’t want to call it a night.
- Gates open 5:30pm
- Bonfire 7pm with Fireworks 7:45 pm
