this week’s firework displays in brighton & hove

Missed all the fireworks over the weekend? Don’t worry, there are still a couple of stunners to make sure your week starts off with a bang. And if these don’t take your fancy, there’s always Lewes Bonfire Night (Or even the mass cycle ride to music from Brighton to get there: the Bonfire Bike Train)! The question is, are you ready to wave your sparklers in the air like you just don’t care?

The postponed one
Last Friday’s ridiculous (rain, rain, rain and a hefty dose of crazy wind thrown in for good measure) weather meant that the annual free fireworks display in Preston Park was pushed back to this week. Hurrah for things to look forward to! The child-friendly fun includes a funfair and plenty of hot food and drink to keep you warm while you wait for the big event to kick off at 8pm.
Friday 8th November, from 4.00pm, fireworks start at 8.00pm; free
Preston Park, Preston Road, Brighton BN1 6SD

The entertainer
The annual display at Sussex County Cricket is always a good option for a spectacular display with live music and entertainment to distract from the chill in the air. There will be food and drink to warm you up, plus a portion of ticket proceeds supports local charities Martlets Hospice and Sussex Cricket Foundation. Win win!
Tuesday 5th November, gates and pre-show entertainment from 6.00pm for 7.30pm display; £5 kids, £10 adults, £20 family
County Ground, Eaton Rd, Hove BN3 3AN

The one with a view
Ok, so it’s not a display in its own right, but let’s face it, it’s going to be hard to beat the view from 450 feet up in the sky, right? The BA i360 has put on an extended ride just for the night, the perfect time to catch the Sussex County Cricket Ground display lighting up the sky!
Tuesday 5th November, 7.15pm – 8.00pm; from £7.40
Lower Kings Road, Brighton BN1 2LN
