Cosham Fireworks Display at King George V Playing Field - 1st November 2017

Published: 1st November 2017 14:37


Portsmouth's biggest firework display takes to the skies on Wednesday 1st November at the King George V (KG5) playing fields in Cosham, also known by locals as IBM or Jubilee Playing Fields.

There will be a children's funfair (under 12's) and a variety of catering stalls which will be open from 4pm.

The bonfire will be lit at 7pm by the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Cllr Ellcome and the fireworks display which this year will be set to music with a  Hollywood theme, starts at 7.30pm.

The display, funded by Portsmouth City Council always draws the crowds so visitors are being asked to avoid driving if possible.

Cllr Linda Symes, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Sport, said:  "This display always attracts lots of people from across the city so visitors are urged to arrive early.  It’s a wonderful event which is free to attend so bring your friends and family and enjoy the display and atmosphere."


Visitors are asked not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the display for health and safety reasons.

Car parking will be available at Lakeside 1000 which is located off Western Road. There is normally an entry fee that is donated to a local charity but this is to be confirmed.

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.
