The events will give firework fans a night to remember with two fantastic performances at each venue. This year’s fireworks themes are Kids’ TV and Film, for the younger audience, and 2013, What a Blast for the second display.  
Gates will open at 5.15pm and people are encouraged to arrive early to avoid queues.  Fairground rides, stalls and refreshments will be open until 10.00pm.

Tickets are only available on the gates on the night and are priced at £8 for adults and £6 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 £25.

Merton Council’s cabinet member community and culture, Councillor Nick Draper, said: “Merton’s fireworks and bonfire displays offer an exciting evening of entertainment for the whole family. It is really good value for money and a great night out. I look forward to seeing you all there!”
