The countdown has begun to Ipswich's annual firework display, featuring a fairground, street food and live music.

Christchurch Park has announced what will happen at this year's fireworks display, which returns on Saturday, November 4.

The display, which will cost over £25,000, will be designed by Alchemy Fireworks Ltd, who won the first place ranking at the Hatfield House Firework Championships over the weekend.

Three live music stages will be erected and feature performances from headliners such as Afterdrive, Amy Allard, Lauren Jennifer and RUKUS, as well as other local names. 

There will also be a fairground, a bonfire, a range of local street food vendors and bars for visitors to enjoy before the big show.

The event, now in its 51st year, raises funds for scouting and other local charities in the Ipswich area and is run entirely by volunteers from the 11th Scout Group. 

Gates will open at 6pm and tickets will go on sale on Monday, October 2, with an early-bird offer available until October 22, with tickets sold at the discounted price of £9.95 for adults and £7.95 for children.
