The event and funfair opens at 6-30pm and there will be local talent playing on the live 2BR stage throughout the night.

The bonfire itself will be lit at 7-15pm.

Coun. John Harbour, Executive member for Leisure, said: “The bonfire and fireworks display will be a great family event and is being carefully organised. Tickets must be bought in advance, because we are unable to sell any tickets on the entrance.”
