When does the show start?
The gates are opened at 17:00 with refreshments, a child entertainment area and music. At around 18:30 the mayor and VIP's will go to the bonfire to light it. The firework display starts about 10 minutes after the bonfire is lit, (usually around 18:45).
What time does the display finish?
The firework display lasts for 20 minutes finishing around 19:05. The refreshments and entertainment stay open until 20:00.
What disabled access is there?
Disabled parking is available at the southern end of the site. Most of the site is tarmac providing a stable flat level surface. The display is visible from the disabled parking spaces should you wish to watch from your car seat.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We are lucky compared to most firework display sites in bad weather because of our great location. All of the site is covered with tarmac or hard standing so there are no muddy fields to walk through, (some puddles do gather in the rain). If the wind is particularly bad then we may be unable to light the bonfire safely, however the firework show will go ahead in all weathers!
Are sparklers permitted?
We do not sell sparklers on-site, but you are welcome to bring your own. We ask you to use the water buckets provided and to keep to the less crowded areas when lighting them.
Are dogs allowed on site?
We do not allow people to bring dogs on-site. Although some dogs are ok with fireworks, we do not think the loud noise and crowds is the best environment for them.
Are there refreshments?
There are various stands around the site selling food and drink.
Will tickets be available on the gate?
Tickets are available on the gate on the night. Having an advance ticket is cheaper and will mean you get fast track access
Can you pay by card?
Tickets can be bought online using card payments up to a week before the show. We accept Visa and Mastercard on some gates using PayPal, however paying by cash will be faster.
Is there any way to pay for tickets by phone?
We can't take payments by phone. Advance tickets can be bought online using PayPal or at local shops.
I want to buy tickets online but there is no button
The paypal button will only be visible when tickets can be bought online. This is from early October through to the Sunday or Monday before the show, (any later and we can't guarantee the tickets arriving in time).
Do you require wood?
We use pallets sourced from local suppliers to build the bonfire. We don't accept wood from any other sources.
What happens to the money raised from the event?
All money raised from the event goes towards local charities and good causes, distributed by Warwick Lions and Warwick Rotary charity clubs.
Do children need advance tickets?
This year we have added child advance tickets. Children aged 4-12 without an advance ticket will need to buy entry on the gate
