The annual fireworks display will return to Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage on Sunday, November 5.

The free event opens at 6.30pm, and the fireworks display will start at 7.30pm. 

Councillor Loraine Rossati, Stevenage Borough Council's portfolio holder for culture and leisure, said: "Public displays such as this are important as they help to limit disturbances for people and animals, and ensure fewer accidents occur.

"Our annual fireworks display is always one of the biggest days in our events calendar. We hope residents will join us for the evening – be prepared for a fireworks extravaganza!"


The display, which is funded and organised by the council, draws in the crowds, so the local authority is advising visitors to avoid driving if possible.

For anyone who has to drive, parking will be available at the South Field Car Park - opposite Stevenage FC stadium - or in the town centre car parks.

"Please avoid parking in residential streets and be mindful of local residents when making your way to and from the display," said a council spokesperson.

Parking at Marriotts School Sports Centre is only available to those who need accessibility parking for the display.

There will be a variety of hot food and refreshments on offer.
