With Bonfire Night being only two weeks away now, here’s a round-up of displays across Preston, Chorley and South Ribble.

Athough numerous Fireworks events have been cancelled acros the North West, many in Preston and its surrounding areas are still planning to go ahead, so the Post have collated them all for you below:


The Annual Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Football Club Bonfire and Fireworks Display. Taking place on Bonfire Night itself at Preston Grasshoppers, the gates and funfair open from 6pm, with the bonfire being lit at 7pm and fireworks at 8pm. Describing itself as “the largest and most popular bonfire night in the area”, organisers say the event sells out each year so prior booking is recommended to avoid disappointment. Tickets are only available online, costing £7.00 per person, or £21.00 for a family ticket – includes two adults and up to two children (Children aged two and under get in free.)
