Below are a number of Frequently Asked Questions about the event

How can we buy Tickets?

You can buy them in advance by visiting our website where you can buy them on line or over the counter at the Littledown.  However, tickets are available on the night.  If you buy them in advance you will be able to access the event quicker via the fast track ticket entry queue.  PLEASE NOTE we can only accept cash on the gate – we do not have credit card facilities

What happens if it rains?

The firework has never been cancelled in the last 20 years.  We are lucky in Bournemouth that we have better weather than the rest of the country.  Plus we have some great indoor facilities for you to use if raining.  Wrap up warm and enjoy the night!!!

Where can we park?

The Littledown has limited amounts of parking spaces, however there are a number of car parks in the area.  Parking on the road is difficult around the Littledown site and please be respectful of our neighbours, however there is road parking to the Castlepoint side of the Cooper Dean roundabout.  Best bet though is to walk or use public transport.

The site is mainly held on the fields although if you follow the path to the kids play area on the Littledown site, there is a good area for people in wheelchairs to watch the event

No we ask people not to as the fields are used for junior football and the metal sparklers could cause injuries.
