Here are a selection of fireworks shows in and around Bristol. Bring your sparklers!

Everyone (except for dogs and cats) loves fireworks. It’s something about the journey; the spark, the shooting light, the quiet… the explosion. And then there is the food, the crowds and the buzz. It’s all there! Despite the best efforts of a young Guy Fawkes, fireworks are certain time to experience some some entertainment with friends.

Victoria Park Fireworks

Victoria Park, Bedminister, Bristol, Bristol, BS3 4DP

Arguably one of Bristol’s greatest green spaces and far from pretentious, Victoria Park is an area known for close knit community and a hill that offers you excellent views across central Bristol. Bring some cash for a selection of food and drink offerings and get there early for a good position on the hill. Note: why not make an afternoon of it and visit the local pubs The Star and Dove (one of the best roasts in Bristol) or Victoria Pub (excellent view and pub garden).

This event takes place 5 November 2019 and is completley free.

Fireworks Display at Compass Point School

Compass Point School, South Street, Bedminister, Bristol, Bristol, BS3 3AU
