Gunpowder, treason and plot!

What’s not to love about Bonfire Night? Cold weather, toffee apples, hot chocolates (or hot toddies for an extra bit of warmth) and a raging bonfire. Brighton offers plenty of organised firework displays throughout the bonfire night week, so wrap up warm and enjoy the show!

Brighton Lions Fireworks Extravaganza

Brighton Racecourse, Freshfield Road, Brighton, BN2 9XZ

Another annual tradition, the Brighton Lions Firework Extravaganza is an enjoyable evening out just a few days before Bonfire Night! Held this year at Brighton Racecourse, the firework display is due to begin at 7.30pm and last about half an hour. Head down in time for doors at 6pm though, as there’s plenty of entertainment on offer for all the family. Kids can play on the fair ground rides whilst parents take solace in the licensed bar, using hot toddies and mulled wine to warm your bones on this cold winter’s evening!

This event takes place 3 November 2019, 6-8.30pm. Tickets cost £11 for adults and £5.50 for children and are available here.

The Nevill Fireworks 2019

Nevill Playing Fields, Nevill Avenue, Hove, BN3 7NB

Many in the East Sussex area head to the legendary Lewes for Bonfire Night, but those who prefer a more a traditional firework experience tend to flock to the Nevill playing fields in Hove! The show comes from the award-winning team at Brightfire Pyrotechnics, who won silver in the 2015 British Musical Firework Championship (no, we didn’t know that existed either!) Choregraphed to a familiar soundtrack and promising a few surprises along the way, this popular annual show is one not to miss. This family event offers food and drinks stalls and places to buy glow sticks and flashing toys, much to the dismay of parents everywhere!

This event takes place 2 November 2019, 5pm-late (fireworks at 7pm). Tickets cost £10 for adults, £5 for children and are available online here.

Sussex Cricket Ground Fireworks Night 2019

County Ground, Eaton Road, Hove, BN3 3AN

Rather than celebrating the weekend before, head down to County Ground on the 5th November for a midweek bonfire bonanza. Raising money for Martlets Hospice and Sussex Cricket Foundation, the tickets are well priced and go to a good cause! You’ll find music and entertainment that’s suitable for visitors of all ages, and plenty of food spots for jacket potatoes and warming hot chocolates. For an extra touch of luxury (and welcoming warmth), treat the family to a hospitality package ticket, which offers you a two-course meal, private cash bar and an exclusive decked viewing area!

This event takes place 5 November 2019, 6pm - late. Tickets cost £7.50 for adults and £2.50 for children, available here. Ticket prices will increase on the night, so be sure to book.

Pop Up Studios, North Street, East Sussex, BN7 2PE

Who says Bonfire Night has to be family friendly? This adults only firework rave is perfect for people who fancy a drink and a boogie late into Bonfire Night. The event goes on till 2am the following day, with music, bar and fireworks beginning from 7pm. The bar is well stocked with Old Tree Brewery bevs and electro and rave DJ sets will play till late. Catch the fireworks midway through the evening!

This event takes place on 5 November 2019, 7pm-2am. Tickets cost £7.50 and are available here.
