What’s on in Liverpool this Bonfire Night
Remember remember the 5th of November…
It’s that time of year once again where the leaves are transforming into beautiful shades of auburn, the air is becoming crisp and the sky is ready to be filled with an explosion of light, colours and sparkle. Unsure of what to do this bonfire night? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered.
Fireworks on the River Mersey
(Display due to start at 6:30pm)
After years of fabulous displays in Sefton park and Newsham Park, there will be no official displays in either of these venues this year. Instead, the Fireworks on the Mersey are back! Beginning at 4pm, there will be plenty of entertainment before what promises to be an incredible finale; there will be street performers entertaining on the Albert Docks, Salthouse Quay, Mann Island, Princes Parade and – on the Wirral side of the river – Hamilton Square and Woodside Ferry Terminal.
As well as all that, at 5.30pm, world renowned Drummers Les Commandos Percu and Deabru Beltza will be performing, making their way through the city centre and finishing at the water front just before the fireworks are due to begin.
It is certainly an event that cannot be missed, so be sure to wrap up in your favourite scarf to shield yourself from the sea breeze and get down to the riverside early to get your places and soak up the atmosphere.
10pm- 6am (last entry 1am)
If the Fireworks weren’t enough and a night out is on the cards, great news: Sanity events are back! A spectacular line-up, including Sem Vox, DLDK, DJ Jacob Plant, Gerald Le Funk, Sonny Banks, Kayo D-Generation. Plus, with the very big special guest – Yves V – your bonfire night is sure to go off with a bang! Ticket prices are £20 and available on Skiddle.
Spark in the Park
St Helens, Sherdley Park: 18.00pm
If you fancy enjoying bonfire night away from the crowds of the city, St Helens ‘Spark in the Park’ bonfire may just be the event for you. As well as a bonfire, there will be a child’s firework display at 7pm and a main display at 8pm.
Liverpool promises to deliver a brilliant bonfire night, so get your thermals at the ready and indulge yourself in the nights traditions of sweet treats that may make you loose a filling or two, hot stews, sparklers and of course a gigantic firework display. The water front is expected to be extremely busy, so we recommend planning ahead and getting down early to avoid disappointment!
