Top 5 Bonfire Nights in Warwickshire

Guy Fawkes Night is almost here again, and with it comes the decision of which firework display to attend this year. With so many options dotted around the Warwickshire area, it is worth considering travelling a little further this year to experience a different atmosphere. Bonfire Night falls on a Monday, so many of the displays are being hosted on Saturday and Sunday nights before so the kids can stay up late. We have taken a look at all that Warwickshire has to offer for Bonfire Night this year.

Hilltop Farm

This third-generation family farm is well-known for their epic, family-friendly firework displays. Their event will be held on Saturday 3rd November, so everyone can celebrate well into the evening. A range of delicious food and drink will be on offer, as well as live music, and of course, the all-important firework display. Bonfire Night is one of Hilltop’s most popular events of the year so grab yourself a ticket before they all disappear.

Warwick Town

Once again, Warwickshire Racecourse will open its doors to the public for their special Bonfire Night event. The notable benefit of choosing this display is that it is hosted at the racecourse, so you will have access to bars and hot food to escape the cold. Braving the elements is one of the things that comes seeing the fireworks in November, so make sure you’re wrapped up and treat yourself to a mulled wine while you wait. Alternatively, opt for the two-course bonfire buffet, and enjoy a hearty winter meal while you enjoy the fireworks.

Warwick’s display will be held on November 3rd, with gates opening at 16:30 and the first fireworks display shooting off around 18:00.

Milner’s Welfare Park, Bedworth

For something a little different this year, head over to Milner’s Welfare Park to see Mayor Hancox kick off this unique display. Last year’s Bedworth display was set to the soundtracks of famous films, which gave it that little something extra to enjoy. Needless to say, the pyrotechnic people have been working tremendously hard on something new this year to take the expected crowd’s breath away. Certainly not one to miss if you in the area on November 3rd.

Jubilee Fields, Nuneaton

Run by the same council, the Nuneaton and Bedford Bonfire Night displays are similar. As well as hot food and drinks, these events are host to a range of fairground rides, aiming to get your adrenaline pumping before the big display.

Gates open around 17:30, the bonfire will be lit at 18:45, and the firework display shooting off at 19:15 on November 3rd. If you choose to drive to this event, please be aware that parking at both Jubilee Fields and Milner’s Welfare Park is particularly limited.

Kenilworth Castle

Finally, Kenilworth Castle has to be mentioned as one of the top Bonfire Nights in Warwickshire. With the majestic castle as a backdrop, this display is one of the best in the county. It has become so popular that tickets always sell out, so they encourage you to book to avoid disappointment on the day.

This event is one of the biggest on Kenilworth’s annual calendar and has grown to become one of the most extravagant displays in the Midlands. Also, all of the funds raised from the evening go back into the community towards good causes. Described as a truly majestic display, this Bonfire Night is one to put on the calendar.
