WINCHESTER'S BIGGEST CHARITY EVENT

This is for Winchester.

Bonfire & Fireworks has been run by volunteers who have given up their free time to stage the event since 1958.

All profits are donated to selected charities in the city and district.

When you buy a ticket, you’re supporting amazing good causes.

Winchester Round Table is a charity and social group for men aged 18-45 in the city. We’re part of the international Round Table movement where members can participate actively in their community.

As well as Bonfire & Fireworks, we stage the annual summer Pedal Paddle Pace triathlon and the famous Santa Sleigh at Christmas.
