Bonfire Night events in London 2019
Bestival founder Rob da Bank is curtaing the music for the epic display at Ally Pally. Go to see fireworks exploding over a glittering panoramic view of London, watch a pagan fire-lighting ritual and down some steins at the German-style beer tent.
As one of the capital’s rare major displays that’s still free, Blackheath attracts huge crowds. Arrive early for fairground rides and food, or wait until 8pm for the big display. Don’t miss a wander through Blackheath Village, where the celebrations spill out into the streets.
Award-winning pyrotechnicians are behind the illuminations set to fire up the Wandsworth skies. Bag your ticket to see bonfire-torching and an eye-popping 22-minute display.
This massive (free) light-filled festival celebrating both Bonfire Night and Diwali is back. Enjoy your fill of funfair rides and street food before watching a lantern-filled parade and stunning firework display, and party on afterwards at Boxpark Wembley if you've got the stamina.
Along with its sister event in Bishops Park, this family-friendly night of fireworks and fun also offers a children's display at 7.15pm before the main event at 8pm, which will be choreographed to music. A funfair and food stalls will keep everybody happy between.
This year, Harrow’s illuminations will be set to tunes from the movies. There’ll also be a section dedicated to the borough’s Indian community celebrating Diwali. Before the big bangs expect Bollywood dancers, Indian food and henna hand art stands.
The Wild Wolf Explorer Scouts are behind the sparkles set off in the bucolic surroundings of Bounds Green park. We reckon it’ll be a cracker – Scout’s honour.
This traditional bonfire night celebration features a ‘Best Guy’ competition and an official lighting of the bonfire (7pm), with the fireworks going off at 7.45pm.
This bonfire bash is an all-weekend affair, with a short theatre production around ‘The Ghost of Guy Fawkes’, slime-making workshops and even a tractor-trailer guided tour for yourself and the young ones to enjoy – but don't miss the firework display at 7pm on the Saturday night. Starry-eyed delights.
The Beckenham Scouts are at it again, taking over the park in Croydon Road Recreation Ground for the area's annual firework display.
