After the massive damp squib that was Bonfire Night 2020, a lot of the city’s big fireworks displays are back this year. A few perennial faves aren’t, mind you, like Blackheath and Crystal Palace, which is a real shame. Still, welcome back, Ally Pally to Wembley. As has become the norm, lots of displays get going in the afternoon, with funfairs, food stalls and more, making it a proper fun family day out. A lot of the displays are happening over the weekend of November 6-7 this year, so pay attention!

NOTE we’re keeping this page as up-to-date as possible as more details of displays are released but for God’s sake try and book asap, and double-check with the local organisers before you traipse along to your local recreation ground with kids/mates/dates in the freezing November twilight.

Picture the scene: copious beer-filled steins, hundreds of fireworks being set off, a Spice Girls tribute band, an ice rink, a funfair, street food. This is Ally Pally’s idea of a fireworks festival in 2021, the likes of which London has never before seen. It’s massive. Be there.

Ally Pally’s Fireworks Festival is on Sat Nov 6. Book tickets here.
