Around 7,500 people go to Bishops Park to see the display so don’t leave it until the last minute.
According to the Evening Standard they will be lighting over £1 million of fireworks in Ravenscourt Park on Saturday the 6th of November (but all of the other details were wrong in their article so maybe they made that up as well). Either way it’s a spectacular show attended last year by over 10,000 people. As with Bishops Park, gates open at 6.00pm. They have a children’s' show starting at 7.15pm and the main show kicks off around 8pm. Entrance is £6.00 on the door or £4 in advance, for more info – although not yet - www.lbhf.gov.uk.

The display will accompanied by stirring 633 squadron style music (watch out for drunks doing the dambusters face mask thing). Flying helmets on for gates opening at 6pm and fireworks starting at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5.00 for adults, and £3.00 for accompanied kids under 14. Nearest tube: Ealing Broadway.
Have fun and stand well back.
