Annual fireworks in Christchurch Park, Ipswich

Annual fireworks in Christchurch Park, Ipswich

Final preparations are under way today as members of the 11th Ipswich Scout Group prepare to welcome thousands of people to Christchurch Park for this year’s fireworks extravaganza.

A spooky procession, performances from spooks and ghouls and even a record-breaking giant pumpkin will be among the attractions at the show on November 1, which has the theme of Spooky Fireworks.

The fireworks display itself, designed and fired by Alchemy Fireworks, will be accompanied by a string of Halloween hits.

In addition to the spooky attractions, Town 102 will be providing family entertainment and there will also be food and a funfair.

Nigel Dixon, of East Coast Productions, said: “With over 100 performers we have pulled out all the stops to create what will be an amazing and unforgettable live animation experience for the people of Suffolk.”

The gates will open at 6pm on November 1 and the display will begin at 8pm.

Discounted tickets are currently available and cost £5 for adults and £3 for children before the day. Entry on the night will cost £7 for adults and £5 for children.

  • How I wish everyone would attend these fantastic organised events rather than set off fireworks randomly in their backyards. We have just walked our dog who has been spooked by three different sets of fireworks . At least with large events pets owners know what day and time to keep their pets safe. Two weeks before GuyFawkes is ridiculous.
