Free fireworks return to Norwich city centre

Firework display above Norwich Castle Published on Friday, 12th October 2018

The city’s fantastic free fireworks display – Big Boom – will be back with a bang on Friday 2 November, lighting up the sky above Norwich Castle from 7.30pm.

 Now in its sixth year, the show is expected to attract a crowd of more than 10,000 spectators outside City Hall, with thousands more likely to view the display from vantage points around the city.

The display will be managed on behalf of the city council by Pains Fireworks, world renowned for its professional displays and steeped in history, dating all the way back to Guy Fawkes himself.

All of the fireworks used in the display will be set to well-known music, adding even more impact to the breath-taking show.

Councillor Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council said:

“I look forward to seeing the city’s streets packed with people for this fantastic, free display.

“This show is a real highlight of our jam-packed events programme and is a great benefit to residents, businesses and the city as a whole”.

The event follows Spooky City, our spectacularly scary Halloween event taking place in Chapelfield Gardens on Wednesday 31 October.
