Avoid the queues at Audlem's Bonfire & Fireworks night on Saturday 2nd November- Tickets can be bought in advance at Audlem Post Office or online here
This is a fantastic evening, there's no need to organise your own display at home as our village event will blow you away with a fantastic pyrotechnic musical display by renowned Blitz Fireworks using the same system as that used in the Beijing Olympics display no less!
Organised annually by Audlem Special Events Team for nearly a decade and a half and featuring thousands (and thousands) of pounds worth of fireworks that will delight the crowds along with the traditional bonfire topped with 'Guys' made by the local Brownies, Cubs and Beavers.
Gates will open at 4pm, there will be fairground rides and food stalls including Fordhall Farm, the Bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and Fireworks at 7.00pm (all timings are approximate.)
Tickets for everyone are £5.00*, under 5s go free. All Children must be accompanied by Adults. No dogs please. And for the safety of all, please do not bring sparklers.
*Prices are the same as last year in spite of the rising costs of insurance, first aid and fireworks for public displays.
Please support this local event.
