Wednesday 5th November
Arrow Valley Country Park
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
