Remember, remember the fifth of November — because there’s lots going on in Bristol!
Halloween might be fresh on your mind, and Christmas is just around the corner, but between the two is Bonfire Night — the unsung hero of winter. Crackling fires, colourful explosions, hot chocolate… what’s not to love?!
As ever there’s loads going on in Bristol, with lots of local fireworks displays taking place this chilly November weekend — but there are also some rather special events going on that you should take a look at…
4 November is Downend Round Table’s annual fireworks display, with plenty of fun for everyone all evening long. There are local traders, sweet and savoury goodies, a bar from Great Western Brewery and lots of extra entertainment to enjoy! A family of four is £20 (all proceeds are being donated to charity), and gates open at 5.30pm. Find out more: www.downendrt.co.uk
On 5 November Puxton Park is hosting a Bonfire Night Extravaganza, with a fireworks display that promises to be “bigger and better than ever before” and a funtastic fairground to all the family! Tickets are £6 each and doors open at 5pm. Find out more: www.puxton.co.uk
Also on 5 November is Avon Valley Country Park’s Fireworks To Music event, which pits the visual spectacle of fireworks against the sonic majesty of body-shaking sounds! There’s a funfair, food and drinks stalls and a fully licensed bar for the adults. Tickets are £2 and must be bought in advance; doors open at 5.30pm. Find out more: www.avonvalley.co.uk
If you can’t make the Friday or Saturday night events, Bradley Stoke Town Council are hosting a free display at the Jubilee Centre along Savages Wood Road — there’ll be hot treats as well as stalls selling food and drink. Gates open at 4.30pm. Find out more: www.bradleystoke.gov.uk
Wherever you end up going, stay safe and remember (remember) to wrap up warm!
