About

Abbey Park Bonfire & Firework Display

Be dazzled by Leicester's biggest bonfire & firework display at the city's official celebration. 

The lighting of the bonfire and main display is always a spectacular sight – with a quieter fireworks show perfect for the younger audience. Watch the skies light up at this annual family event, with a programme of live entertainment, funfair and plenty of warming food stalls.

New for 2019 is a breath-taking live show Lords of Lightning shooting million-volt bolts of lightning across the night sky in a spectacular live display and high intensity soundtrack!
