Plans confirmed for 2018 Wilmslow bonfire and fireworks celebrations


The Wilmslow Bonfire and Fireworks 2018 event will take place on Saturday 3rd November and includes a bonfire and children's firework display followed by the main fireworks display.

In addition, visitors to the charity event can enjoy fairground rides and a selection of refreshments, including hot dogs, burgers, Thai dishes, fresh doughnuts and mulled wine. Sweets, toffees, popcorn, candy floss and cold drinks will also be available from the sweetie tent.

A free park and ride scheme will operate from Broadway Meadow Car Park (adjacent to Wilmslow Leisure Centre). Buses will leave the car park at regular intervals during the evening, starting at 5.30pm, and will drop you off at Carnival Field. Buses will be available for the return journey until 9.00pm.

The event is a major part of the fundraising calendar for Wilmslow Round Table. As usual the proceeds of the event will be used to make various charitable donations. In the past, the proceeds from the bonfire have been used to raise funds for David Lewis Centre, Francis House Children's Hospice, Christie's, Macmillan Cancer Support, MAST, East Cheshire Hospice and many others.

Gates will open at 5.30pm and the bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm. The firework display for small children will start at 7pm, before the main firework display starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets can be purchased in advance online or on the day. Advance tickets cost £5 per child, £8 per adult and £22 for a family (2 adults, 2 children). Tickets purchased on the day are On the day £7 per child, £11 per adult and £27 for a family (2 adults, 2 children).

RoundTable: If you require any more timber for the bonfire, we have a quite considerable amount of dry house timber from recent reroofing of our old house.
