Merton set for dazzling firework displays

Two of London’s most popular fireworks displays, organised by Merton Council, will take place in Morden Park, Saturday 3 November and Wimbledon Park, Monday 5 November.

The events will give firework fans a night to remember with two fantastic performances at each venue. This year’s fireworks themes are Disney, for the younger audience, and Shake ‘n’ Shout it out!

Gates will open at 5.15pm and the display times are as follows:

6.30pm – First bonfire lit.
6.45pm – First fireworks display: Disney theme.
8.15pm – Second bonfire lit.
8.30pm- Second fireworks display: Shake ‘n’ Shout it out! theme.

Fairground, stalls and refreshments will be open until 10.00pm.

Tickets are available on the night priced: £8 for adults and £5 for ages 16 and under. Ages four and under can go for free. A family ticket for two adults and two children, aged 16 and under costs £20.

Merton Council’s cabinet member community and culture, Councillor Nick Draper, said: “I’ve been taking my family to Merton fireworks nights since they were in pushchairs. They’re in their 20s now and still enjoy it all. It’s excellent value for money and a great night out. I look forward to seeing you all there!”
