Cosham Fireworks Display at King George V Playing Field - 2nd November 2016

Published: 28th October 2016 11:27


Portsmouth's biggest firework display takes to the skies on Wednesday 2nd November 2016 at the King George V (KG5) playing fields in Cosham, also known by locals as IBM or Jubilee Playing Fields.

This year it will have a special pirate theme.

The event starts at 4pm with a funfair for under-12s, and at 7pm the bonfire will be lit. There will also be a variety of food stalls to choose from.

Wood has been donated by local businesses including L&S Waste Management.

The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Cllr David Fuller, will lead the countdown to the fireworks at 7.30pm.

Nemisis Pyrotechnics will be providing a 20-minute fireworks display with a Pirates of Portsmouth theme, promising a pyrotechnic spectacular with a finale on an awesome scale.

Visitors are asked not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the display.

Car parking will be available at Lakeside 1000 which is located off Western Road. There will be an entry fee of £2 which will be donated to the local Rotary Club.

Any vehicles parked on double yellow lines and grass verges risk being towed away. 

Cosham train station is located five minutes away and there are bus stops adjacent to the field on Northern Road.
