St Albans Fireworks
The iconic fireworks display in St Albans’ Verulamium Park is back this year, starting at 7:30pm, the backdrop of St Albans Cathedral will be lit up with a plethora of spectacular colours.
Away from the fireworks, you’ll be able to enjoy some classic bonfire night food from suppliers such as The Pudding Stop to local brewer Mad Squirrel Brewery.
If you’re in or around Watford, the Cassiobury fireworks display should be your stop for the night.
The free event is run by volunteers, the display which starts at 7:30pm promises to be magnificent, all the while being accompanied by a number of food and drink options, funfair rides right through to bungee trampolines – perfect for all of the family.
Tring Festival of Fire
Making a fiery return this year, the Tring Festival of Fire comes back to Tring Park Cricket Club.
A full evening programme that begins at 6pm ensures you’ll be making the most of the night, including the Tring Guy Competition, children’s rides and the main event of the fireworks set to a raft of supporting pieces of music.
Starting at 7:30pm in the Manor House Playing Fields, the Abbotts Langley firework display will be one that is perfect for the family.
With a professional display set to music, there’ll be hot food and children’s amusements on site, as well as The Manor House bar opening for the adults to pick up some autumnal cider.
Another popular show in Dacorum is the Berkhamsted Fireworks, and for good reason.
The popular night is one that will send you into a daze for 30 minutes as it includes an immersive display set to music accompanied by lasers and lighting.
Open for guests of the hotel, the Grove’s firework display will be exactly what you need to take in the ultimate bonfire night experience.
From 7pm on you can get around the outdoor firepit, drink some mulled cider and hot chocolates, and taste toffee apples and toasted honey smores, before the big event at 8pm.
