BONFIRE NIGHT BRISTOL, W-S-M & PORTISHEAD
Welcome to my 2022 round-up of fireworks displays for bonfire night in Bristol and North Somerset.
This handy guide features charity events, bonfires, quiet fireworks for those who aren’t keen on the big bangs, plus plenty of food, drink, music as well as other forms of entertainment to accompany the firework displays in Bristol and surrounding areas.
I currently have TEN fireworks displays in the Bristol and North Somerset areas listed. If you know of any others or would like your own event added, please drop me a line.
5th November falls on a Saturday this year. Some of the displays are being held the week before, some on Guy Fawkes Night itself, with others stretching out over the following couple of weeks, so whether you’re looking for fireworks in Bristol tonight or a display in North Somerset later in November, we’ve got you covered!
Read on for details of dates, times, prices plus links to where you can buy tickets to North Somerset and Bristol fireworks displays.
Please always check with the organiser before you travel as events can sell out and display times may be subject to change or cancellation.
