A family evening of fireworks will be lighting up the sky in Hitchin again this weekend for Bonfire Night.

Hitchin Fireworks in partnership with community firm Ladder 87 will be putting on the display in the town on Sunday, November 4, 2018 – the day before Guy Fawkes Night.

In addition to the spectacular fireworks display at Hitchin Priory, there will be a roaring bonfire, local food and drink, a beet tent, and a vintage funfair for the kids.

The traditional theme proved a hit with families last year, which saw the Priory grounds bursting at the seams.

Gates to the Tilehouse Street venue open at 4pm with the fireworks starting at 7pm.

Advance adult tickets cost £6 adults and £3 under-14s.

Tickets on the gate will cost £8 adults and £5 under-14s. Tickets on the night will be strictly cash only.
