Get ready to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahhh’ at our Brockwell Park firework display!

This year’s LIGHT themed firework display will to be bigger and better than before, promising to thrill visitors with activities and entertainment for all ages. Alongside the amazing fireworks display, visitors will be treated to a bonfire, a first for the Brockwell Park event; a funfair with both adult and kid’s attractions; bars and a variety of  concessions serving both cold and hot food to keep you warm on what is normally a chilly November night. We have much more fantastic entertainment lined up, and will keep you updated via  @EventLambeth on Twitter and

This year will be our first ticket-only event, with Lambeth residents given the opportunity to purchase tickets for £6 per adult (there is no charge for children under 16 years of age). Visitors who are not residents of Lambeth can buy tickets for £7.

Tickets will go on sale in mid-September and all tickets need to be purchased in advance of the event. They can be bought in the following ways:

  • From your local library
  • By calling the Box Office on 0871 220 0260 (calls cost 10p per minute from landlines, plus standard network charges)

See for more information. Hope to see you there!


5 Thoughts on “Get ready to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahhh’ at our Brockwell Park firework display!

    It is such a shame that you are introducing a charge for this event, as you will be excluding low income families. If it is due to safety you could still have introduced tickets and offered them FREE and on a first come first served basis for Lambeth library card holders or with a lambeth council tax bill or chargeable for anyone living outside the borough. Having moved from Wandsworth last year (one of the lowest council tax boroughs) to Lambeth (one of the highest council tax boroughs) a free community event helped justify the huge difference in what we pay in council tax. It was events like these that brought all members of the community together and that made Lambeth a great place to live. Making it a pay for event will ultimately mean that many children and families will loose out.

    Very disappointed to see charging being introduced and feels quite underhand way to present it . Would have been better to just do a piece saying financial situation means now having to charge By the way is not the first time has been a bonfire there was always one for years down near the lido end of park but was stopped some years ago am assuming for health and safety reasons .

      Hi Mary, thanks for your comment and sorry you feel that way. Part of the reason for selling tickets is keeping the event safe, last year when it was free the emergency services advised the crowds were too large.

    OMG!!! Talk about creating a DIVIDED LAMBETH! How dare you!

    Making locals pay for tickets – the best way to exclude those who could be encouraged to become socially conscious human beings (and goodness gracious – they need that encouragement) and instead you encourage bad feeling – and probably bad behaviour.

    I realise the answer to the question “Why have you done this?” will be ‘To cover costs’ but – you could have used this as a perfect opportunity to be creative – ask for donations/proof of local residency – all sorts of ideas. Feel like boycotting it immediately but – THAT’S OUR PARK!!!
