Cosham Fireworks Display - 5th November 2014

Published: 27th October 2014 14:50

 Portsmouth's biggest firework display takes to the skies on Wednesday 5th November 2014 at the King George V (KG5) playing fields in Cosham, also known by locals as IBM or Jubilee Playing Fields.

The free event will open at 4pm where there will be a children's funfair (under 12s only) as well as a variety of catering units. From 6pm there will be live music and entertainment provided by Wave 105 (to be confirmed).

The spectacular fireworks display will take place from 7.30pm. The display, funded by Portsmouth City Council, and supported by sponsors Stagecoach and My Journey, is expected to attract many thousands of people.

Selstar Fireworks will be providing the fireworks which will include fountains, waterfalls, Catherine wheels, shells and many more to light up the city skyline.

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

Parking will be available at IBM Lakeside car park (£2 per vehicle with proceeds going to the Rotary Club) and on street pay and display areas (outside of the road closures - see below).

Northern Road will be closed from the junction with Portsmouth Road and Medina Road roundabout in both directions from around 6pm - 8.30pm and Portsmouth Road (by McDonalds) will be closed for around 45 mins from 7.45pm - 8.30pm.

Hi there,

I just wanted to say that this year the Fireworks are not being provided by Kimbolton fireworks, but by Pyro-Tec Fireworks.

Pyro-Tec Fireworks are a locally based professional display team with many years of experience in the Pyrotechnics industry.

Support your local Portsmouth Fireworks team by coming to tonights display, and you won't be disappointed !!!

Thanks for the update. I have just updated the article. We are really looking forward to it and from the amount of people we have had looking it up, it should be a busy night. Good luck!

Hi there,

Looking out of my window it is looking fairly breezy. What chance is there that tonight's event will be cancelled and will it be announced via local radio?

Hoping it is not cancelled!
