Kaboom! Best local firework nights

See in bonfire night in style across Cornwall with our pick of the top family-friendly events.

If you don’t fancy DIY-ing it this year with your own pack of pyrotechnics and a few measly sparklers from the local supermarket, how about heading out to one of the brilliant local bonfire nights across Cornwall? They’re bigger, much better organised and no chance of the rockets falling over and shooting into the house (guilty). Roll call, please!

Falmouth Fireworks, Falmouth Cricket Club, 5 Nov

Hosted on Guy Fawkes Night this evening offers a huge pyrotechnic display starting from 7pm. Also on offer are fairground rides, music, entertainment and food stalls. Proceeds go toward supporting local causes. Falmouth Cricket Ground off Trescobeas Road. Gates open at 6.00pm for a 7.00pm start.

Adult tickets £4, child tickets £2

Port Eliot Firework Display, Saint Germans, 5 Nov

Take me to the hog roast! This is their first display since the sell- out 2019 show, with this year’s bonfire night is set to be bigger and better! With over double the number of caterers, and 5 bars getting what you need, when you need it will be quick and easy. The gates will open from 4pm if you want to avoid the rush, and grab yourself a hotdog and a glass of mulled cider, toffee apple and a hot chocolate – or whatever takes your fancy. The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the fireworks display at 8pm
