Fantastic fireworks to light up Bolton 


Leverhulme Park’s spectacular community firework display and funfair will return on Friday November 4.

The event begins at 6pm with the opening of the fair. A range of fantastic rides will be on offer, as well as traditional food favourites such as black peas, toffee apples and candy-floss.

Presenters from Tower FM will entertain until 8pm when a free community firework display starts and the night sky will then be filled with a dazzling display, complete with dramatic musical accompaniment.

The event has been organised by Bolton Council in association with Stanley John Cubbins Amusements and Tower FM.

There is limited parking on site and visitors are encouraged to travel by public transport where possible.

Stewards will be present throughout the event, providing visitors with a safe environment to enjoy the display. To ensure everyone’s safety, visitors are asked only to attend an official bonfire such as this one and not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the event.

Residents are asked to call the council’s contact centre if they see a bonfire on council land or close to property, other buildings or trees.

For safety reasons, any bonfires built on council land will be treated as fly tipping and, as such, will be removed as soon as possible. Any evidence of people fly tipping can be used in a prosecution with fines of up to £20,000 or imprisonment.

If residents see a bonfire on private land that they believe could be dangerous then they should contact Fire Stoppers on 0800 923 9999.
