Some know it as Bonfire Night, some call it Fireworks Night but either way the 5th of November is nearly here, and although the actual day falls on Tuesday 5th November 2019 there are many events throughout the borough that are happening before and after.

Fireworks displays in Bromley are big business and most offer funfairs, licenced bars, BBQ food and music, so to prevent you developing a bad case of firework FOMO we have created a list of some of the best events to help you plan the perfect Guy Fawkes celebration.

Displays are ordered by their location, so we’re sure you’ll find something close to you.

Please note, we are not associated with any of these events – if you have any questions regarding pricing or start times please can you contact the organiser directly.
