Bournemouth’s biggest and best-loved fireworks party is ready to raise the bar again this year with a grand party at the Littledown Centre on Saturday, November 3.

The only fireworks event on the south coast with three top quality displays set to music, including the famous White Knuckle – the region’s loudest and latest fireworks show – the stage is set for Bournemouth Fireworks to go with a bang.

“We’re expecting up to 8,000 people to join us at the Littledown for the greatest fireworks show in town,” says event director Michael Callaghan. “We’ve been planning the event all year and we know it’s going to be a great night out for all the family.”

This year’s Bournemouth Fireworks continues its 22-year association with Pains Britain’s longest established fireworks display company. Its history dates back to 1590 and it is thought the gunpowder to be used by Guy Fawkes and his fellow plotters to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 was made by John Pain, the company’s founder.

As well as the three fireworks displays there’s the free-entry indoor Family Fun Zone, with the amazing wildlife collection of Crazy Creatures, the acrobatics of Avonbourne Gym Club, the inflatable zone and the brilliant Get Up & Groove disco.

Outside there’s a giant late-night funfair, licensed bar and a full range of refreshments while the Littledown Centre pitches play host to have-a-go sports sessions with local rugby, cricket, football, netball and tennis coaches, as well as the low-impact new sport YBall, which is based at Littledown.

This year Bournemouth Fireworks is partnering with Bournemouth & East Dorset Relay for Life, a team fundraising challenge bringing families, friends and communities together to beat cancer. Teams fundraise for life-saving research over the year then in July join an overnight celebration of hope, remembrance and celebration while walking a 24-hour relay in recognition that for those touched by cancer it never sleeps.

Relay For Life will be fundraising at Bournemouth Fireworks at the Littledown. Gates open at 5.30pm with fireworks displays at 7pm, 8pm and the White Knuckle at 9pm.
