Battersea Park fireworks tickets now on sale
Published: Monday 30th September 13
Tickets for one of London’s biggest and best fireworks displays have gone on sale today (Monday, September 30).
The annual Battersea Park fireworks display, which this year – being close to Halloween – has a ‘shrieks and skulls’ theme, takes place on Saturday, November 2.
The popular display, which last year was attended by about 43,000 people, will be fired by award-winning pyro-technicians Pains Fireworks. A food court and bar will be offering refreshments throughout the evening.
Wandsworth’s culture spokesman, Councillor Jonathan Cook, said: “This year we will once again see one of London’s best parks host one of London’s best fireworks displays.
“Unsurprisingly the display is usually a sell-out so I would advise anyone who’s keen to go to snap up a ticket while they can.”
Entry to the event, which is widely regarded as one of the best the capital has to offer, is by advance ticket only – organisers will not be selling tickets on the door.
Tickets went on sale today (September 30) – and are priced to reward early buyers.
Until Sunday, October 27, they are priced at £6.50 and then between Monday, October 28, and Friday, November 1, they will cost £8.
Tickets will be on sale until gates open on Saturday, November 2, but they can only be bought via the website – they will not be sold at any outlets or over the phone. Tickets bought on the day will cost £10.
Entry for children aged under 10 will be free but they will still require a ticket.
The decision to only sell tickets in advance of the event has been taken to prevent overcrowding and ensure spectators can enjoy the display in comfort and safety.
The Civic Suite, in Wandsworth, is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4.30pm, while the Millennium Arena, in Battersea Park is open Monday to Friday from 7am to 10pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7.30am to 7.30pm.
