Remember remember, the FOURTH of November!
Fawkes in The Walks, The Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk’s annual free fireworks display, is back on Friday 4 November.
The Walks, the beautiful park right in the centre of King’s Lynn, will be packed with stalls and rides from 6pm. Presenter Simon Rowe will entertain the crowd and turn on the Radio West Norfolk DAB signal during the evening. There will be live music from Vex and headliners The Chebbs.
At 6.30pm the borough mayor, Cllr Lesley Bambridge will light the bonfire. The main firework display is scheduled to begin at 8pm.
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. As well as the usual bucket collection for donations, this year contactless donations can be given to the borough council accredited volunteers.
Charges may be made for other activities in the park.
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 and sparklers are not permitted in The Walks.
Please do not bring firewood for the bonfire as this will not be accepted.
The entrance to The Walks from Seven Sisters/Extons Road, the Library gates and County Court Road will be closed on the evening from 7:35pm. People planning to enter the park after 7:35pm are advised to use the Tennyson Avenue and Blackfriars Road entrances.
Permitted sellers will be inside the Walks, please support your local event by only using the ones inside the park for flashing glows and other novelties.
The most convenient car park for the event is the St James' multi-storey, and attendees are advised to use this. There will be more free entertainment on stage once the fireworks end and it’s recommended that people stay to enjoy some of it to help stagger the time that many drivers leave the car parks.
Anyone planning to attend the event are advised to monitor the council's social media channels for up-to-date information or any changes to arrangements.
Once again the borough council is asking residents to use the hashtag #FawkesInTheWalks when sharing pictures of the night on social media channels.
