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.
Past displays at the Muswell Hill landmark have included recreations of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and the destruction of the Spanish Armada on the boating lake.
Simon Fell, Fireworks Festival director, said: “We can’t wait. The Ally Pally Fireworks Festival is an institution, the go-to display for London and one of the biggest events in our calendar. We’ll be bringing you all the classics – spectacular fireworks and a massive bonfire. It’s more than just a display, with live entertainment, in all its forms, spread across the site to give a winter festival feel. We’re blessed with lots of space so people have plenty of room to relax and enjoy themselves."
Events run from 4-10.45pm on November 6 with tickets costing £12 for adults, £9 for 11-15 year olds and £2 for under-10s.
Visitors will have to show their NHS Covid Pass to gain entry to the event. https://fireworks.london/
