 Portsmouth's biggest firework display takes to the skies on Wednesday 4th November 2015 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 provided by Wave 105.

The fire will be lit at 7pm with wood donated by L&S Waste. 

The spectacular fireworks display will take place from 7.30pm. The twenty minute display will have a theme celebrating music from the last five decades with a big finale.

The display is organised by the Portsmouth City Council Events Team with fireworks provided by Nemisis Pyrotechnics Ltd. 

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 a £2 entry fee which will be donated to the local Rotary Club.
