Gates to Hatfield Park will open at 5pm, and the bonfire in the Queen Elizabeth Oak Field will be lit around 6.30pm.

All entrance gates are due to close at around 6.45pm.

Tickets for the popular public display cost £7 for adults in advance and £3 for children. It is free for under-fives.

Advance tickets are only available online. Visit www.hatfield-house.co.uk for more details.

On the night, tickets will be available at the gate at £8 per adult and £4 per child, cash payment only.

Knebworth-based radio station Bob FM will provide a space-themed evening of entertainment.

There will also be a funfair and catering units offering hot food and drinks.

This year’s fireworks will be in support of Welwyn Hatfield mayor Les Page’s charity, Parkinson’s UK Welwyn Hatfield branch.

He said: “The fireworks display at Hatfield House is always something special, so I’m very much looking forward to it again this year, and having a space theme will give it another dimension (pardon the pun) I think.

“I’m pleased and grateful to Hatfield House that this year’s display will be in support of my chosen charity, Parkinson’s UK Welwyn Hatfield branch.

“It promises to be a thrilling night for all the family.”

Free car parking will be provided, but organisers ask that as many people as possible walk or use public transport to get to the site.

It is forbidden for anyone to bring pets or fireworks – including sparklers – to the display. Gazebos are not permitted either.
