Balsall Common Lions 2011 Bonfire & Fireworks display

Balsall Common Lions Bonfire & Fireworks display

Balsall Common Lions Club’s annual Charity bonfire and fireworks display is set to take place at Willow Park on Saturday 5th November 2011.

The popular charity fundraiser always pulls in a bumper crowd and the well-drilled Lions team has fine tuned their fireworks display over the years into a truly impressive visual symphony of colour.

This year’s event follows the now familiar annual timetable, with gates open from 6pm, judging of the guy competition at 6.30 pm and lighting of the fire, with fireworks from 7.15pm. As usual there will be plenty of side attractions and catering serving up hot and cold drinks, Pig Roast and Sausages, glow-sticks. Sweet toothed visitors will be able to find popcorn, candy floss and sweets courtesy of local store, Sweet Memories.

Admission at the gate will be £7 adults, or £3 for children, with alternative advance ticket options available from Angela Jaynes Florist on Station Road, Balsall Common, at £6 adults or family ticket at £15 (for 2 adults and 2 children up to 12 years).

Balsall Common Lions wish to acknowledge the support from event sponsors Jamieson Christie Wealth Management an raffle sponsors Alan Heath & Sons Bathrooms.

Venue: Willow Park, Needlers End Lane, Balsall Common

  1. Another rip off Bonfire Night in Balsall.
    Hopefully the park will be cleaned up this year??

  2. It’s a charity event, so the point is to raise money for good causes. As for the tidying up, the Lions always include a tidy up operation as part of the plan, so if there’s something amiss this year afterwards, raise it with them directly, I’m sure they will rectify any issues. They’re nice people.

  3. Well, I don’t usually write on message boards like this but I was so disheartened by the comments that I couldn’t resist – I mean really, the cheek of these charitable organisations putting on a fantastic evening of family entertainment lighting up in multicolours these somewhat gloomy times – its a disgrace isn’t it!? Keep up the good work Lions
