Free firework display in Brockwell Park

This year’s fireworks display will take place at 8pm in Brockwell Park on Saturday 5 November and will celebrate the bicentenary of Brockwell Hall, now a Grade II listed building.

To celebrate 200 years of Brockwell Hall, the fireworks will be set to music from the last 200 years and a funfair and stalls, food and mulled wine will be available from 4pm. Entry is free.

Councillor Florence Nosegbe, Cabinet member for Culture, said: “Brockwell Park is the perfect location for the fireworks this year as it’s the 200th anniversary of Brockwell Hall, which is now a Grade II listed building. There will be live bands, a choir, morris dancers, stilt walkers and a funfair and food and drink stalls, so it promises to be a great night.

“Despite the tough times we really wanted to still be able to offer residents a free fireworks display and I’m pleased we have been able to do so. It should be one of the best displays in London.”

To make sure that everyone enjoys a safe and enjoyable display, no sparklers, fireworks for personal use or Chinese lanterns will be allowed into the park.
