The event and display, organised by the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, brings thousands of local residents, and visitors from near and far, to Lynn’s beautiful park to see a dazzling firework display, traditional bonfire and live entertainment.
The fun will start at 6pm, when the park will be packed with stalls and rides. The bonfire will be lit at 6:30pm. Simon Rowe and team from Radio West Norfolk will entertain the crowd. There will be live music from Vex and headliners The Chebbs. The firework display is scheduled to begin at 8pm.
Cllr Graham Middleton, borough council Deputy Leader and Cabinet member for Business, Culture and Heritage, said:
“Thousands of people come and enjoy our amazing display. Fawkes in The Walks is back with and bang and will be as spectacular as ever, I’d urge everyone to come along and join us.”
Fawkes in The Walks 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.
Once again the borough council is asking residents to use the hashtag #FawkesInTheWalks when sharing pictures of the night on social media channels.

People are advised not to bring pets to the park during the evening. This is an organised display, private fireworks and sparklers are not permitted in The Walks.
