fireworksHere’s our guide to the best fireworks displays in our area.

Downend Firework Show – Friday 1st November
This event is organised by the Great Western Round Table and takes place on the King George V Playing Fields, Sutherland Avenue.

Gates open at 5.30pm and there will be a children’s display at 6.30pm with the main display at 7.30pm.

Cleve Rugby Club’s annual firework display is also on Friday 1st November. Gates open at 6pm, with the display starting at 8pm.

The Riverside Inn at Saltford on Saturday 2nd November is one of the more spectacular settings and if you really want to do things in style, why not book a table and enjoy the show from the comfort of the restaurant.  The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the display starts at 7pm.

If you are looking for a venue on Sunday 3rd November then head to Bristol Telephones Rugby Club on Stockwood Lane, Whitchurch. It’s probably the best deal around for family entrance and the bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm with fireworks at 7pm.

Keynsham Rugby Club hosts its traditional event on  Tuesday 5th November. Gates open at 6pm and the display is due to get under way at 7pm at the Crown Field Ground. Tickets will be available on the gate.
Admission is £7 per adult, £4 per child with a family ticket (two adults and two children) costing £20. There will be a funfair on the site.

For something a little more intimate, the Carpenters Arms in Wick is also planning a bonfire and fireworks. The fun starts at 6pm.
