Sparkling show lined up for Merton fireworks displays

Tickets for two of London’s most popular fireworks and bonfire displays, put on by Merton Council, are on sale now. The displays this year take place at Wimbledon Park on Thursday 5 November and Morden Park on Saturday 7 November.

Like last year, tickets can be bought online ahead of the event and at a cheaper price. A limited number will be available on the night, but people are encouraged to book in advance to avoid possible disappointment at the gates. Children aged four and under get in free.

Saturday 12 September, Wimbledon Park.

Two fantastic performances are lined up this year with the themes The wonderful music of Disney, for the early performance more suitable for younger children, and Through the decades at the later show. Gates will open at 5.15pm for the first show and 7.15pm for the second. People are encouraged to arrive early for the show they are seeing to avoid queues. Fairground rides, stalls and refreshments will be open until 10pm.

Classics in the Park.

Merton’s cabinet member for community and culture, Councillor Nick Draper, said: “You won’t find a fireworks and bonfire display like Merton’s anywhere else in London. Each show will have great fireworks, music, fun and attractions – and as Morden Park, with its natural bowl setting, and Wimbledon Park, with its classical Capability Brown-designed openness, are very different venues, you have the choice of either (or both!). Come and share the experience- and make sure to book your tickets online to save money. I look forward to seeing you all there.”
