Portsmouth's biggest firework display takes to the skies on Wednesday 7th November 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 12's only) as well as a variety of catering units.
The bonfire will be lit at 7pm, followed by a spectacular firework display at 7.30pm which will begin after a countdown led by the Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth. The display, funded by Portsmouth City Council always draws the crowds so please avoid driving if possible although parking is available at Lakeside.
Cllr Steve Pitt, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Sport, said: "Our free annual fireworks display is always really popular and attracts lots of people from across the city. Arrive early, bring your friends and family and enjoy the evening and the display."
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 for £2 which will be donated to the Rotary Clubs of Southsea Castle, Portsmouth and Southsea and Rotaract.
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.
