Abbey Park Bonfire & Firework Display - Saturday 5th November
Abbey Park Bonfire and Fireworks Display is Leicester’s biggest display, attracting over 15,000 visitors. In addition to the main fireworks there’s also a children’s firework display, which is quieter and especially themed for a younger audience.
BBC Radio Leicester presenters will be hosting a great stage programme including CBeebies characters Waybuloo, who will be appearing live on stage (6.30pm), The Reason 4 from series 7 of The X Factor, Deseo featuring Charlie Bruce (winner of So You Think You Can Dance) and Leicester singer, Jersey Budd. There’s also a big screen getting you closer to the action, a children’s funfair, food stalls and, of course, the bonfire.
In the run up to this year’s event, local city primary schools are taking part in a competition to build guys for the bonfire. For further details, visit our the website.
