RBC Bonfire Poster 2014

It’s that time of the year again when all of Redditch comes together on the 5th November to watch the annual fireworks display at the Arrow Valley Lake.

Once again, there will be free entry to the venue so all the family can enjoy an evening of fun at no cost. However, if you want to treat yourself or the children, you can discover thrills on any one of the rides at the fairground, which will be open from 6pm.

If you enjoy your music and entertainment there’s something for you too, local bands Denim and Stuart Woolfenden will provide you with a talent packed show from 6:30pm onwards.

We try to raise the bar with our fireworks display every year, so if you came last time you’ll know that when the sky explodes into a cocktail of colour at 7:30pm, it’s going to be special.

Please note that a section of Battens Drive will be closed this year between 6pm and 9pm while the event takes place, so if you usually take that route - don’t. Alternative routes will be provided and the usual disabled parking and park and ride system will still be available. Check out the map and poster for more info.

Watch the skies light up and make the 5th of November a night to remember by enjoying a fantastic FREE fireworks display at the Arrow Valley Country Park.

There will be food and drink will be available to buy. 
Please arrive early to avoid the firework spectacular being delayed.

  • Fireworks are stored safely (usually in a tin with a lid)
  • They comply with the guidance set out in the firework code
  • Children are always supervised around fireworks
  • They never return to a firework which has failed to go off – it may go off unexpectedly
  • They never pour petrol or other flammable materials over a bonfire
