Alexandra Palace's legendary fireworks festival returns this year with an awe-inspiring light display over London.

After an enforced year off in 2020, the annual extravaganza is 'back with a bang' with beer, bonfire, music, street food and ice skating in the 196 acre park and palace.

There's outdoor live music with DJs including Trevor Nelson who tops the bill with a bit set of classics, while the display itself on November 6 will be sound-tracked by a specially curated playlist.

The family area will feature a bonfire, fire juggling and other entertainment, while the great hall is transformed into a German Bier Festival complete with music including Spice Girls tribute band Wannabee.
