Lions Reading Firework Extravaganza

Published

on

It’s back for 2019!

The Lions Club of Reading have their annual Fireworks Spectacular at the ground of Reading City FC on Scours Lane (just off Oxford Road) in Reading on Saturday 2nd November 2019.

A spectacular fireworks display will light up the sky at 7pm

A family ticket purchased in advance is just £15 for up to 2 adults and 3 children (5-15 years old). Adult tickets are for everyone aged 16 years and older, and children’s tickets are for 5-15 year olds. Under 5s are admitted free of charge, and don’t require a ticket. Click here to buy tickets online.

Tickets purchased on the night will be more expensive, and are limited.

And there’s plenty to do before the fireworks display, with fairground rides, hot food and drink stalls and a licensed bar.

There’s further fun with face painting and other activities.

Gates are open at 5pm, and it’s best to arrive early, to give yourself plenty of time to get parked and on the site ahead of the fireworks.

And it’s easy to get to, with plenty of free parking available, as well as being on the Sky Blue 16 bus route from Reading Town Centre.

This always a very popular event, so to avoid disappointment book your tickets today.
