Tickets are available on the door, £2.50 per person (pre-schoolers free). All proceeds to Scout Group Funds. The scouts have requested that no sparklers or hand held fireworks are brought to the event.

The children and families of Henleaze Infant school are gearing up for their annual fireworks extravaganza on Friday, November 4. The generous school playing fields have proved to be a great location for this community display in the heart of Henleaze. The school will open its gates at 6pm to all local families to come and share in some guaranteed ooohs and aaghs!  They'll be hot dogs and veggie dogs on sale at reasonable prices, hot chocolate and soft drinks for the kids, and a full cash bar tempting mums, dads, neighbours and grandparents with warm mulled wine.

Tickets are on sale from the Eastfield Inn and Chandos Deli, and from the PTAs of Henleaze Infant school, Henleaze Junior School and Westbury Park Primary. Advance ticket prices: adult £4, child £2.  Gate prices: adult £5, child £3.

Bishop Road Primary are really excited to be putting on their brilliant fireworks event again. This year's event is on Saturday, November 5 from 5pm (last entry 6:30pm, Fireworks at 6.45pm) on the Bishop Road School field (next to One Way Garage on Bishop Road). As usual there will be children's entertainment as well as the novelties stall and Tuck Shop. There will be two Bath Ales bars on site again this year as well as a number of food stands, including Gopal's Curry Shack who were a massive hit last year. Expect a Samba band, fire performers and a spectacular fireworks display.
