Worst fireworks I've ever paid for. The music could not be more out of time or inappropriate to the display. also tiny space and rammed in - avoid. Trying Brockwell Park this year.
Battersea Park Fireworks

Only the organised may take in the fireworks from Battersea Park, as tickets must be bought in advance, and go on sale from Oct 1. Those who do manage to do some forward-planning will be rewarded with a display that's choreographed to a musical soundtrack, plus a bar, food stalls and concessions selling glow products to make everything even more colourful.

What a disappointing show. Queued for ages to enter the park thanks to ticketmaster's digital entry system slowing everything down. Paid an extra fee for booking tickets. The bonfire was smaller than ones I've had in my garden. There was just one bar, with literally thousands queueing for it. The fireworks lasted 20 minutes (I've seen free shows last longer) and contained no big bangs, fancy fireworks (smiley faces etc) and the choice of music was awful. And they have the audacity to ask for extra donations after charging £10 for entry? Avoid these fireworks and go to one of the other fantastic free displays like Blackheath. If you are looking for a real bonfire try Brockham or Carshalton.
Decent (if somewhat late) fireworks, but the bonfire was disappointing. It was more of a smouldering 3ft high mass than a proper bonfire and once the crowd built up you couldn't even tell where it was. Agree with Kev about the compering. Aside from the screaming competition I really didn't need to be told where the toilets were every 30 seconds.
Another year, another fantastic display. I bought my £6.50 ticket early and directly from the athletics track in the park so no Ticketmaster fees. I thought the sound track fitted the halloween theme very well, we were dancing in our wellies :) Shame about the bonfire but with the wind it was understandable, though disappointing
A decent display, but awful compering (including a screaming competiton) by ''award-winning comic'' Eddie Kadi (according to Wandswoth Council's website). The sound track to the fireworks was also very odd.
it would be an £8 ticket except ticketmaster want to apply an admin fee and a service charge which puts it over a tenner in total - disgraceful. I wish all the money was going to Wandsworth but middleman takes their 25% cut. No option to buy on the gate so you have no choice but to give your charitable donation to fleeceitmaster (or boycott the event)
