Now in its eighth year, the spectacular display is a highlight of the town’s winter events calendar and this year’s event promises to be just as impressive. Thousands of local residents, and visitors from near and far, gather in Lynn’s beautiful park, The Walks, to see a traditional bonfire, and a dazzling firework display.
The fun will begin at 6pm, when the park will be packed with stalls and rides. At 6.30pm the borough mayor, Cllr David Whitby will light the bonfire, and the main firework display is scheduled to begin at 8pm.
Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, borough council cabinet member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said: “The Walks makes a fantastic venue for this popular event, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy an amazing firework display in a controlled and safe environment. Fawkes in the Walks is the perfect way for the whole family to celebrate Bonfire Night”.
Fawkes in The Walks is organised by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, and is free to attend. A voluntary collection will be made on the evening to help cover the cost of the event, and every donation is appreciated. Charges may be made for other activities.
Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult.
People are advised not to bring pets to the park during the evening.
This is an organised display. Private fireworks are not permitted in The Walks.
The entrance to The Walks from Seven Sisters/Extons Road will be closed on the evening from 7:45pm, and anyone planning to enter the park from that end is advised to use the Tennyson Avenue entrance instead.
People planning to attend the event are advised to listen to 96.7 KLFM on the evening, as cancellation information, should it be necessary, will be announced there.
