Set against unrivalled panoramic views over London, this is THE capital’s hottest bonfire night. What’s more, you can build your own personalised experience. Simply add on what you fancy doing that night (on top of watching the fireworks, of course!) – whether that’s catching a movie in their gorgeous Victorian Theatre, a bit of ice-disco, or German biers, among many other options.
PS: tickets are running low for the aforementioned German Bier Festival (which features an Oompah Band and an Elvis Presley tribute show). Can’t say they didn’t warn you!
On Saturday 5 November experience foot-stomping live music, a taste of Bavaria at the UK’s largest German bier festival headlined with a tribute to Elvis Presley, a legendary DJ set in the StrEATlife village from Gok Wan, a whizz around the ice rink to a disco soundtrack, cinema screenings in their Victorian theatre and, last but not least, lighting up the London skyline with their legendary fireworks display!
Display and Laser Show
Boom! No-one does fireworks quite like Ally Pally. We’ve been letting off zingers, sending up sky rockets and spinning Catherine wheels into London’s heavens for over 150 years. Watch the capital’s skyline sizzle and whizzle from the most spectacular vantage point imaginable, sound-tracked by a specially curated playlist, and bring a pocketful of OOOHHHs and AAAHHHs.

They don’t want to blow their own trumpet but their bonfire’s bigger than your bonfire. In fact, it’s the largest for miles around. Come and join them in the lower field for the grand lighting of the bonfire to kick off the proceedings.

Shaun of the Dead film starts 9pm
New to this year they invite you to cosy up in their beautiful Victorian cinema. For the little ones (and not so little ones), you can look forward to the LEGO movie in the afternoon, before things get ooky spooky AND funny with Shaun of the Dead in the evening. They’re coming to get you, Barbara!
