Drayton Manor's Best of British Firework Display

Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November

Are you looking for a thrilling local fireworks display for the whole family to enjoy? Join Drayton Manor from Friday 2nd November – Sunday 4th November to partake in their red, white and blue themed Best of British extravaganza!

Whether you want to celebrate the ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ or merely boogie on down to British classics from Queen, Oasis or The Beatles, there’s only ‘One Direction’ you should be heading this October Half Term. Come to Drayton Manor Park as they ‘Spice Up Your Life’ (and maybe even raise a glass of ‘Bucks Fizz’ in celebration) and enjoy the best fireworks display in the Midlands!

As the dark nights roll in, this is a great chance to celebrate the year where we celebrated the birth of a prince, a Royal Wedding, and a Queen who has been on the throne for 65 years. Bring the family along and join them for the ultimate British bash.

 Himley Bonfire & Fireworks

Saturday 3 November

Gates open 4pm

The legendary family friendly Himley Bonfire & Fireworks will be lighting up the night sky, set to this year’s theme of Heroes. This is the largest local authority fireworks display in the country.

We have all got our own hero or heroine, whether it be a superhero, movie star, sportsperson, entertainer or someone who has been an inspiration to millions across the world. But some of our heroes and heroines are closer to home, maybe a parent, a grandparent, teacher or someone from the blue light emergency services for instance.

This year’s Himley Bonfire & Fireworks event is going to celebrate all our heroes with a spectacular pyrotechnic display set to inspirational music. As a respectful commemoration of the end of World War I in 2018, they will be honoring those who battled and maybe lost their lives in the Great War one hundred years on this November. Look out for the special tribute on the night.

Book your tickets in advance this year and enjoy a 20% online discount!

Not only have they got a brand new contractor to create a stunning display and soundtrack to enhance the experience they also have more entertainment on offer. A giant funfair til 10pm, the Heart 100.7 Roadshow, live entertainment, a unique night market and seasonal refreshments.
