Your Fireworks Night Checklist

The annual fireworks event at Markeaton Park has been cancelled.Don’t panic, Derbyshire County Cricket Club, in partnership with Pattonair, has got you covered, with the biggest fireworks display in Derby on Saturday, 5 November.

While you watch on as The 3aaa County Ground sets the sky alight for the first time, here are a few things to remember to ensure you have an unforgettable experience.

The fun starts from 5pm

Before the firework extravaganza gets underway at 7pm, you will have time to soak up the entertainment and enjoy a large fun fair when gates open at 5pm.

Capital Breakfast’s Dino and Pete

Your hosts for the evening are Derbyshire’s very own Dino and Pete. The dynamic radio duo will come to life and keep you entertained throughout the evening.

The fireworks aren’t the only thing lighting up the night

You will be able to purchase light-up gift accessories, ranging from wrist bands to flashing mohawks, from the Club Shop, located to the side of the 3aaa Pavilion, throughout the evening.

Wrap up warm

As we move into the winter months, the temperature really starts to drop. With Bonfire Night taking place on the evening of Saturday 5 November, it is likely to be rather chilly, so remember your hats, gloves, scarves and coats.

Leave the picnic baskets at home

There will be an array of food stalls around the ground to quench any thirst and satisfy any appetite on the night.


Driving down to The 3aaa County Ground? No problem, there will be parking available around the ground, priced at £5.
