Abbey Park Bonfire & Firework Display


Abbey Park Bonfire & Firework Display

Be dazzled by Leicester's biggest bonfire & firework display at the city's official celebration. The fantastic fun takes place on Saturday 3 November from 5pm – 9pm on Leicester's Abbey Park.

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. This year's theme is Saturday Night Fever, and certainly promises to be a fantastic event that  John Travolta himself would be proud of. 

Take a look at this year's event timetable for the full schedule.
