It may be over a week until Bonfire Night but it’s never too early to start planning ahead, so here are five firework displays we recommend attending in Chelmsford.
Stood in groups of friends or family, supporting local charities and organisations, there’s something about a firework bonanza that just makes it so amazing. However, the safest way to enjoy bonfire night is to attend one of the many events held across the county.
Divisional Officer Neil Fenwick, Community Safety, said: “Organised displays are bigger, better, cheaper and far safer than holding your own fireworks party.
“These displays last longer and are far more impressive than anything seen at a back garden firework display. They also benefit a lot of good causes.”
So here are some of the best firework displays in Chelmsford that will be taking place this year.
Where: Admirals Park
When: Saturday 3 November from 4pm
Admission: Adult £7.00, Child (3 to 16) £5.00 – VIP packages are also available
This year’s display at the City centre park will be the 42nd organised by the Rotary Club. With entertainment, fairground rides, food and drink available on-site, there’s plenty to enjoy alongside the firework display. Want to enjoy the display in style? Purchase VIP tickets and you’ll gain access to private toilets and a private bar inside the VIP tent.
