Fireworks in Kent 2019

Caitlin Minter
21st October 2019

Bonfires are burning big and bright, illuminating this cold autumn’s night. Tasting toffee apples that are oh-so-sweet, makes this November night a special treat. Fireworks fill the sky with an explosion of colour, making other nights look a whole lot duller.

Yes it’s that time of year again where the sky is alight with brilliant colour and the sound of ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ fills the air. With so many wonderful firework events taking place here in Kent, we have put together our top picks of bonfire nights in the county. So wrap up warm and head outside to see some fantastic fireworks. Remember, Remember the 5th of November…

Leeds Castle Fireworks Spectacular

Prepare yourself for the South East of England’s biggest firework display on November 2nd and 3rd as Leeds Castle hosts their Firework spectacular. 25,000 colourful star bursts will fill the sky over the fairy-tale castle in the biggest event yet to celebrate their 900th anniversary. Put on your dancing shoes as this year’s ‘around the world’ theme will have everyone dancing with plenty of entertainment during the day. We’re talking live music, fairground rides, falconry displays and so much more!

There’s plenty to remember in November…

Canterbury Cricket Ground Fireworks Night

Are you ready for a bonfire night party? Well, get yourself over to Canterbury for Kent Cricket’s firework evening extravaganza on November 5th. There will be singing, there will be dancing and a lot of colourful explosion glancing. Tuck into delicious frankfurters and toffee apples from the food stalls, oh and did we mention that there will be amazing fairground rides there too?

End your night with a boom…

A Quex Park Party

‘Runaway’ to Quex Park on November 2nd for a night of awe-inspiring fireworks and rock out 80s style to the sounds of Bon Giovi. You’ll be ‘livin on a prayer’ as you marvel at the colourful illuminations, hot chocolate in hand and boogieing on down to the sounds of this rocking tribute band.

Wanted Dead or Alive…

Living the Kent Life

Prepare for a boom as Kent Life shake up the room on November 2nd and 3rd. Be stunned by fire breathers lighting the mesmerising bonfire and wait in anticipation for the countdown of their spectacular fireworks display. The evening will be fun for all with face painting, fairground rides, delicious food and a licensed bar. Better still, your little ones will have access to the play areas, tractor rides and cuddle corner during the whole event.

Firework flair at the fair…

Make way for Medway’s Fireworks

Bursts of colour will fill the sky on November 2nd at Gillingham’s Great Lines Heritage Park and you’re all invited. Warm up by the brilliant bonfire as you take in the bright lights and indulge in scrummy hot food and drink.

A Grand Display

Parks across Royal Tunbridge Wells will host traditional processions, bonfires and firework displays throughout November. Why not take a trip to Rusthall Village and join in with a torch light parade? Or head over to Dunorlan Park for some fairground rides and see the magnificent firework reflections in the majestic lake.

A ‘Tun’ of fun…
