The 'early' display is usually 8.15, which I've always thought a bit odd as its dark well before then. I think we might go this year - always gone to Leckhampton scout hut before but it's small and v crowded and the trees get in the way. Burley should be spectacularly muddy after the churning up it had at Hullabaloo in August though!
It is a fabulous firework display BUT lacks a bonfire, which to me has always been a critical part of a 'proper' Bonfire Night event. There's usually a decent display (early for children, later for adults) at Burley Fields in Leckhampton, with a bonfire, pig roast and traditional mud underfoot....
I live in Oz and am traveling back to 'Nam for Oct/Nov to spend time with family etc.
Anyway, my daughters are mad keen to see some proper fireworks and experience bonfire night UK style (not 'celebrated' here anymore). So does anyone know any public displays going on? We'll be staying in Montpellier but obv can drive anywhere.
I grew up in Cheltenham and seem to remember that the Racecourse used to do a big public display - does that still happen?
