Battersea Park Fireworks

Both events will take place in the 200-acre Victorian Park, and alongside the fireworks and after-party, there will be an array of food stalls selling street food, amply stocked bars along with DJ sets from special guests that will continue into the early hours of the morning.

Tickets for the fireworks are prices at £10 for adults under 11’s are free. The after-party is an adult-only event and tickets are £20 plus booking fees. Tickets must be purchased in advance for both events and the after-party tickets must be purchased in conjunction with a fireworks ticket.

Gates will open at 6pm giving everyone plenty of time to enjoy the warming bonfire food and drinks on offer before the preshow entertainment begins. At 7:30pm Is the lighting of the bonfire by the Mayor of Wandsworth and at 8pm the main event begins.

For 20 minutes the night skies above Wandsworth will be lit up in an explosion of colour and effects as award-winning pyrotechnicians Jubilee Fireworks return to the stage. (please note there will be no more entry into the park once the firework display has begun).

After the pyro fix some of the audience are then invited to the after party held in the heart of the park and just a short walk away from the display area. Party and dance the night away in the gleaming glass venue. Or if you are not one of the lucky 10th of guests that get the tickets you can head over to Battersea Power station which has a vibrant mix of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes on the riverside.

Where to watch the fireworks in London

Beautifully Coloured Bursts

Three days of Guy Fawkes celebrations across London kick off tonight, with dozens of fireworks displays in parks.

Organisers promised a “huge array” of “the best pyrotechnics”. Many of the events are free. Tonight, thousands are expected to flock to south London venues, where many of the displays will be taking place.

There will be fireworks at Brockwell Park, Clapham Common, Streatham Common, Wimbledon Park, Crystal Palace Park and Southwark Park. There will also be displays at Roundwood Park, Brent and Syon Park, Brentford — where the Gunpowder Plot will be re-enacted.

Displays will also be held tomorrow and on Saturday when crowds will gather at some of the country’s biggest fireworks shows. Fireworks at Alexandra Palace will be coupled with England’s largest German beer festival and a funfair, and this year’s display at Battersea Park will be set to music with the theme of “love”.

Sally Chatterjee, chief executive of Visit London, said: “London has a huge array of firework displays taking place this year and many of them are free. It’s an ideal way to see some of London’s most stunning parks and heaths while enjoying some of the best pyrotechnics displays around.”
