“On the night, we advise people to get to the ground early to avoid queuing and allow plenty of time to see what’s on offer. We would also urge people arriving by car to park responsibly and be mindful of the residents living in the immediate area.”

Gates open at 5.30pm with entertainment beginning at 6.00pm.  The evening will culminate in a spectacular fireworks display choreographed to music starting at 7.30pm.
