Downend Round Table's annual fireworks display is BACK next month

Posted on: 05 Oct 2021

Don't miss the biggest Bristol fireworks display of the year next month at King George V Playing Fields.


The ever-popular Downend Round Table annual fireworks display is making a comeback, set to dazzle audiences once again at King George V Playing Fields on Friday 5 November. 


The yearly in-person event, normally drawing between 8,000 and 10,000 people, was cancelled last time out and moved online due to the pandemic, but will be making an eagerly-awaited return with another unmissable display this Autumn.


The occasion is put together each year by Downend Round Table, a local non-profit club that is part of the largest voluntary organisation for young men in the world, with all proceeds set be used by the group to make donations to local good causes.



Excitingly, there are an array of spectacles taking place throughout the night. There will be two firework displays (including a children's display that is quieter and deliberately more about the visual effects), an impressive bonfire, music and a full bar.


Gates to the playing fields open at 17:30, with the children's display taking place at 18:30. The main event gets underway at 20:00, and organisers advise attendees to get there with plenty of time to spare to grab a good spot. 


Tickets are on sale now, and for a limited amount of time (up until 22 October), are frozen at 2019 prices - more information can be found over on the event's website.


Organisers are working their hardest to deliver a safe and entertaining experience and, therefore, are asking attendees to not bring any sparklers, alcohol or pets to the event.


With Bonfire Night fast approaching, those looking to attend Bristol's biggest firework show would be advised to grab a ticket and head to the King George V Playing Fields for a spectacular comeback display.
