An organised firework display will return to Sherdley Park this Bonfire
Night, with organisers promising it to be one of the biggest and best
Thousands of visitors are expected to attend this year’s event which will
see fireworks launched in rhythm with popular music tracks at a children’s
display, before the event closes with a main spectacle.
Suzanne Davies, St Helens Council’s Events Officer said: “This year we will
be hosting a musical fireworks display which we believe will be hugely
popular and attract a large audience from across the region.
“The fireworks display in Sherdley Park has increased in popularity over
recent years and we are urging people to plan their journey via public
transport using Lea Green Station or to use the secure, designated car
parks near the site and arrive in plenty of time.”
Secure, chargeable, stewarded and fully lit car parking is available at
Mere Grange (£5 per car), Lea Green Station, Sutton Academy and The Islamic
Centre (£10 per car) or you can park for free at nearby Chester Lane

Hot food and drinks will be available from a number of stalls on the night
to keep everyone warm.
Event-goers are asked to leave their sparklers at home this year. Spent
sparklers that can be missed during the clear up operation can cause
serious injuries to those taking part in sports activities and dogs being
walked in the park after the event.
The event gets underway at 6pm on Sunday 5 November, with the opening of
the funfair (open until 9pm) followed by the children’s fireworks display
at 7pm. The main event will get underway at 8pm.
