2021: Beckenham Fireworks is bigger and better for 2021
Beckenham Fireworks is back for 2021 on Saturday the 6th November and will be better than ever with more stalls, a bigger funfair and even more fireworks blasting into the sky. Gates open at 5pm for a quieter display (some small bangs) at 6pm that is also perfect for younger children. The main display with all the bangs is at 7.45pm.
Primary school kids get in for free (must be accompanied) and under 18s are only a fiver. Adults cost a tenner, a family of two adults and two teenagers or one adult and three teenagers is only £20.
Food stalls this year include burgers, jerk chicken, paella as well as warming drinks –baileys hot chocolate anyone? They’ll be serving from 5pm and the rides and stalls will be running all evening until the end of the fireworks.
Most of Beckenham seems to turn out for the display that has been running for more than 70 years. Last year the 5th Beckenham South Scout Group took over the organisation from the local Round Table five years ago and they have continued the tradition of using the profits to support local charities.
Get there early to pick your spot, grab a bite to eat, find a flashing toy for your kids and have a go at the funfair; entrances are in Village Way (BR3 3NJ) and Croydon Road (BR3 3PR).
