Derby’s biggest fireworks display

Derby’s biggest and best fireworks display returns to The Pattonair County Ground on Sunday 3 November – and tickets are on sale now.

Derbyshire County Cricket Club is the place to be this November to see a dazzling fireworks display, the biggest in Derby, as Bonfire Night approaches.

Smooth Radio will host the Fireworks Night and Fun Fair spectacular, in partnership with Pattonair – the leading global aerospace and defence supply chain service provider and Principal Partner of Derbyshire, based in Derby.

Returning for a fourth-successive year, the event will include music and entertainment from Smooth Radio, a large fun fair suitable for all ages and the city’s biggest pyrotechnic and fireworks display.

Gates open at 4pm, with an unmissable fireworks display from 7pm. Tickets are on sale now and you can save money by purchasing your tickets in advance.

Chief Executive, Ryan Duckett, said: “Our annual Fireworks Night event is one of the most popular nights in the calendar and it has grown in size every year.

“It’s Derby’s biggest fireworks display, and being able to engage with our local community with a night that has something for the whole family is something we are immensely proud of.

“We are grateful to Pattonair and Smooth Radio for their continued support of the event.”
