So with Halloween only next week our thoughts are turning towards planning Bonfire Night! We always go to a local fireworks display and although I have never been a huge fan of fireworks, I love going to displays as it feels like the start of the festive countdown!

We have been to a few over the years, some not so great but others well worth the entry fee! We even tried some at home, but it was definitely not as fun! For more Bonfire Night info and safety tips, head over to Attempting Adulthood’s post. Mia likes going to the events but isn’t a huge fan of the actual fireworks, so ear defenders are her best friend on Bonfire Night!

Here are a few of the Firework Displays in Nottingham happening over the next couple of weeks so if you’re local to us, why not pop down! (There are less going ahead this year due to covid but I have added them in for future reference.)

Mellish RFC Bonfire & Fireworks kicks us off this year on the 6th November. Literally 5 mins down the road from us, this annual display includes a bar, BBQ and is one of the best value in the area! Just pay on the gate! (Adults – £5, Children – £2.50, Under 5s – FREE)

GCRN Firework Spectacular 2019 also on the 6th November this year. Situated in Ruddington, I used to go to this one as a child with my dad and have fond memories of the night. They have a Funfair featuring both vintage & modern Fairground Rides, hot & cold food, fully licensed bar and live music from Rocks & Frocks, it’s definitely up there with the top displays in the area! (Adults – £5, Children – £3)

Colwick Racecourse CANCELLED. I haven’t ever attended this one however I have heard really good things about it from other people. An advanced Family Ticket is £20, with Adult Tickets costing £8, and Children are £3 each.

The display we have attended for the past 2 years is Lambley Village Bonfire and Fireworks Display. CANCELLED. It’s one of the best events I have ever been to and seems to get better each year! With plenty of local stalls, fairground rides and plenty to eat and drink, the fireworks do not disappoint! Adult Tickets are £5, Children are £4 and Family Tickets are £15 so again, really affordable for a decent display.

Lastly, the display which I used to go to in my 20’s is at the Forest Recreation Ground. CANCELLED. It’s a free event however you can buy tickets for extra bits, like the best view of the fireworks and food vouchers. Hosted by Homemade & Notts Street Food, the wristbands cost £12 for Adults, Children are £7.60 and Under 6’s – FREE. It would be well worth paying the extra for the best views over the Forest Rec!
