One of the largest fireworks displays in Hertfordshire for Bonfire Night 2015 will be seen at Verulamium Park in St Albans.

The Verulamium Fireworks Spectacular will take place two days after Guy Fawkes’ Night on Saturday, November 7.

Gates to the St Albans park open at 6pm and the fireworks will start around 7.30pm, with more than 20,000 people expected to attend, depending on the weather.

The 25-minute display is organised by a team of over 400 local volunteers, including scouts, Rotary, Round Table, Abbey Youth, Lions and the St Albans Cathedral congregation.

The display is produced by Fantastic Fireworks of Redbourn, the leading UK provider of spectacular fireworks.

This amazing public display was started over 25 years ago in order to reduce firework accidents at home at this time of the year, and has been successful in doing so.

The display is as popular as ever and attracts more than 20,000 people into Verulamium Park each year.

Since its beginning, the display has raised over £700,000 for local and national charities.

Advance tickets cost £5 for adults and £2 for children under-16 and senior citizens.

A family ticket for two adults and two children under-16 costs £10.

You can also pay on the gate, cash sales only, with adult tickets £7, children £2, and a family ticket £15.
