Weather proof and at the front of the crowds, you’ll enjoy an exclusive view over the lighting of the Bonfire and the Fireworks spectacular. There’s an unlimited open bar for you during the course of the event (6.30pm till around 8.15pm) where you can enjoy local ales, beers, wines and soft drinks.

These tickets are only available online and are limited to 200 people.

Please Note

We recommend you buy your tickets in advance as we do expect to sell out very quickly, and the event has been a sellout in advance for the last four years.

Once the event is sold out, we will not allow entry to the Bonfire & Fireworks site.

If the event is cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control, we will treat your ticket price as a donation for our charity fund. Please read our Ticket Terms and Conditions.
