The gates will open at 5.30pm with the quieter display starting at 6.15pm. This display is perfect for younger children who still want the excitement of a firework display but without the huge bangs. The main display starts at 7.30pm and will fill the sky over Sixpenny Handley. The ticket price gains entry to both displays.

There will be plenty of entertainment to enjoy during the evening, with popular traditional fete games, face painting and omni-glow sold by the First School. Enjoy the fantastic hand-made hot dogs and burgers from Clarke the Butchers and relax in the bar with a pint from Sixpenny Brewery, or try the irresistible Cranborne Chase Cider. There will of course be ‘Neesy’s’ Mulled Cider and pumpkin soup to warm the hands. Don't forget the great home-made sweet stall from St Mary's Church. There will be fire juggling to wow the crowds and the main display will start with a special Scouting themed bang.

After the display finishes, and the arena closes, head over to The Shed for the after show party and listen to tunes from 'Sunstroke'.

We look forward to seeing you there!
Thank you to our event sponsors
