Some tips to help you enjoy your evening.


  • For everyone’s safety, sparklers and personal fireworks are NOT permitted on-site.
  • No alcohol is to be brought on site, and no open bottles.
  • Please only bring a bag if necessary – bag searches will be made on entry by our security team..
  • Please follow the instructions of any marshal, security staff or police officer.
  • Please remain behind any safety barriers at all times.


  • Are only available in advance.  It speeds up entry and you’ll get a discount if you book early enough!
  • No gate tickets will be available.


  • It is going to be very busy and so for safety reasons there is no parking within Brabyns Park on the evening. 
  • If you live locally, and are able to walk to Brabyns Park, please do so – you’ll avoid the traffic, save the environment and have more fun.
  • If you do have to drive, please use local car parks, there are two situated on Brabyns Brow  – a full list of local car parks can be found here.
  • You cannot park on surrounding roads. Parking restrictions are in force before and during the bonfire.

Entry & Timings

  • The gates open from 18:00, and we recommend arriving as early as possible to allow plenty of time to make your way into the event.
  • Queues can build up on the entrance gates, so please have your tickets ready to show the marshalls.
  • The lighting of the bonfire starts at 19:00, with the fireworks show starting around 19:30

Clothing / Equipment

  • The Bonfire and Fireworks obviouly take place outdoors, in the evening, in November! Please wear warm clothing –  especially young children – coats, gloves, scarves etc are recommended.
  • Depending on the weather on the day, the park may get muddy, so please wear boots or appropriate footwear.
  • A lot of the site is lit, but some areas of the site can be dark, so please bring a torch.

Food & Drink

  • There will be food and drink retailers on the site selling a range of food and drink (though no alcohol).
  • These stalls will have their own payment arrangements. We cannot guarantee they will take card payments.
  • There is no Cashpoint in the park.
  • No alcohol is to be brought on site, and no open bottles.

Young Children

  • It is dark and busy, so please keep young children close by.
  • If any children do get separated from their family, they will be taken to the First Aid tent (on the main car park) and looked after there.


  • There will be no toilets available this year.


  • Please do not bring a dog.  We don’t believe the site is appropriate for dogs – the site is very busy, dark, noisy, and the fireworks are really loud.
