Southwark's Free Fireworks Night

Southwark's FREE Fireworks Night

Wednesday 5 November
Southwark Park, SE16
Gates open 5pm, fireworks 7pm, close 8.30pm


We are expecting large numbers of people this evening so arrive early to avoid the long queues.

The event has a limited capacity and once we've reached it, we've reached it and will have to turn people away.

Wrap up warm for Southwark Council’s annual fireworks display, back with a bang this November as we light up the skies over Southwark Park during a special Fireworks Night event.

There will be a whole host of things happening on the night to keep you entertained: pop tunes, fire and light circus performances, and a family funfair. Hot drinks and food and luminous paraphernalia will all be available to buy on-site.

The gates will be open from 5pm with the main display at 7pm.
