Wednesday 19 to Saturday 22 October. Residents’ parking schemes adjacent to Ilkeston town centre will be suspended and some roads closed next month when the 770th Ilkeston Charter Fair rolls into town. See latest news for more information.

Bonfire Night

Fireworks are set to light up the sky this Bonfire night with the annual Erewash Borough Council Bonfire and Firework display at West Park in Long Eaton.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘Relight My Fire’ and will see a spectacular firework display at the park. The annual event will take place on Saturday 5 November. Gates will open at 5pm.

Tickets for the popular event go on sale today, Thursday 1 September, with discounts for those who book in advance. An adult ticket can be purchased for £8, and tickets for children aged 16 and under, and senior citizens (over 60), can be purchased for £5 – both offering savings of £2. There is also a family bundle which includes tickets for two adults and up to three children, costing £20, a saving of £11 when compared to buying tickets separately.

On the night, tickets can be purchased at West Park’s gates for the standard price. Adult tickets cost £10, 16 and under tickets cost £7, senior citizens tickets cost £7 and the family bundle costs £25. Children aged five and under can enter for free regardless of when tickets are purchased.

All tickets can be purchased online at Live Tickets.
Discounted tickets will be available until 12 noon on Saturday 5 November.

Leader of Erewash Borough Council, Councillor Carol Hart, says:

“The Bonfire and Fireworks Display is one of the most anticipated events in the council’s calendar, and for good reason! The evening is certainly going to be one to remember with endless fun to be had. I also encourage everybody to visit our website to take advantage of the discounted tickets and bundles available – the savings really do add up to a fantastic offer for a wonderful night.”

Parking tickets are available to purchase online and at the gate on the night (if spaces are still available) for £3.
