TICKETS have gone on sale for Leicester’s biggest and best annual firework display.

The dazzling celebrations at Abbey Park take place on Saturday, November 3, from 5pm to 9pm, with a programme of events guaranteed to appeal to all ages.

This year’s events are themed around disco music, and will feature live entertainment from Guru Dudu.

Advance tickets give visitors the chance to save up to 40percent compared with full-price tickets bought on the night.

The event will include a quieter bonfire show for younger visitors, a programme of live entertainment, a funfair and plenty of mouth-watering hot food stalls to stave off the autumnal chill.

Adult tickets bought in advance cost £6, with concessions and under 16s costing £4, or £16 for a family ticket admitting two adults and two children. Under fours go free but will be issued with a wristband.

Tickets are available from Visit Leicester in Gallowtree Gate, or the De Montfort Hall box office on 0116 233 3111. Tickets can also be bought online at

Free bike parking is available on site at Abbey Park.

Leicester deputy city mayor responsible for culture and leisure, Cllr Piara Singh Clair, said: “The Abbey Park Bonfire and Firework Display is always a fantastic event with a spectacular programme of entertainment and activities for all the family.

“As the city’s official display, it is the biggest and best in the city, and a firm favourite as part of Leicester’s exciting events calendar.

“Advance tickets are the best way to both save money and to avoid queuing on the night, so I would urge people to take advantage of this opportunity.”
