20 Fireworks Displays in Northants

Fizz, pop, whizz bang - Are you ready to get sparkly with the sparklers? Don't forget to layer up in Northants on Bonfire night and check-out where to go just here...

Remember, remember it’s nearly December – try not to lose the plot!  Now that’s what I call a seasonal mash up. There is A-LOT going on, not least kids half term (still?), Halloween, the cusp of Bonfire Night – and of course, Christmas lights are turned on across the county soon after that. 2017 is slipping away from us but I’m determined that we’re going to live the rest of it large.

Fireworks.  Lots and lots of organised firework displays across Northamptonshire – Friday 3 and Saturday 4 November

BANG! There goes another one,
Screaming as it goes.
It’s getting high,
Up in the sky,
And fizzle – there she blows!

WHOOSH! Up high above the house,
Behind a trail of sparks.
Yellow, orange,
Red and white,
Exploding in the dark!

    Barnwell Bonfire is NOT at Barnwell Country Park, but in Barnwell at the Village Hall.
    Hope you’ll be able to change that to avoid confusion.
    Thank you

      Cheers for the heads up Trudy. All sorted.
