Halloween And Bonfire Night: South West London Guide

  23 Oct 2017

The dip in temperature and increase in rainfall means that there are many things to dislike about autumn but there are also some things that many people love about this time of year. There are plenty of reasons to get out of the house and with Halloween and Bonfire Night, there is fun for all the family.

If you are looking to seek out the supernatural at Halloween, the Hampton Court Palace Ghost tours on October the 31st will be for you. There is a family event at 6.30pm, an adult event at 7.30pm and there is a late night special at 10.30pm, so you can select which event is likely to get your heart racing the most.

If you fancy another way of getting your heart racing around Halloween, check out the Trick or Treat Run which is scheduled for Richmond Park on October the 29th. There is a chance to walk, jog or run and you can choose between 2km, 5km and 10km routes, so this is something which can keep you active in autumn.

Light up the night sky in autumn

There is no denying that Bonfire Night is big business these days and major events are often a very good idea. It is best to watch a well-organised event from a safe distance as opposed to trying to run your own celebration, and in South West London, you have plenty to look forward to.

You’ll find that Hammersmith and Fulham Council take Fireworks events very seriously and you’ll find events in Bishops Park and Ravenscourt Park. This may not fit your criteria of being South West London events but they are within easy reach and they are both well organised and highly enjoyable events. There is a family feel to these events which makes them suitable for all ages and you’ll usually find that there are smaller fireworks displays, aimed at appealing to young children, in the early evening, so if you want an early night, you can still enjoy one.

Sadly the Vauxhall Fire Festival Firework Display which had delighted many local residents in the Pleasure Gardens for a number of years was cancelled in 2016 and there has been no information about any event being lined up for this year. This was an excellent part of the local Bonfire Night celebrations and is a great loss to the community.

The Battersea Park Fireworks event is taking place on Saturday 4th of November and this is an event that will be suitable for all the family. Held in Battersea Park, the gates open at 4 and the live entertainment and action starts at 6pm with the firework event scheduled for an 8pm start. This is an event which has a capacity of 50,000 people so you know that it is going to be a noisy and exciting night.

Enjoy a great night out in your local area

Another event that has a great reputation in the local area is the Barnes Sports Club Fireworks Night. This is also taking place on Saturday 4th of November and there is plenty going on. There will be a competition to find the best guy and the lighting of the bonfire takes place at 7pm with the fireworks starting at 7.45pm.

The Richmond Family Fireworks event, which is a big draw in the local area, is taking place once again and it will be held on Sunday the 5th of November. There is always a theme to these events and in 2017, the theme is 80s Music Night and the fireworks are all set to light up the night sky while playing alongside some of the biggest hits and tunes from that era.

Another Saturday 4th of November event is the Lambeth Fireworks event which takes place at Brockwell Park. There is a theme for this event and it is A Night A The Movies, with the 20 minute fireworks display being set to some of the best soundtrack songs. There will also be plenty of live entertainment and music from 5pm, so you can get along early to this event.

If this isn’t enough options for you, you should consider the Wimbledon Park fireworks event. There will be a bonfire and two separate displays, with the first fireworks display being a real treat for children, as it has a Disney theme. The children’s display begins at 6.30pm and the traditional Fireworks Display begins at 8.15pm.

When it comes to making the most of autumn in South West London, the best Halloween and Bonfire Night displays will more than keep you entertained and amused.

What our clients say about us

  • " I've dealt with some horrible agencies whilst renting in the past but I am glad we had Jezzards as our last. Didn't know that someone so professional and understanding and true to it's word existed in the business. I locked myself out once and they were there in  20 mins to assist. Heating stopped in the night and their out of hours assistance helped sort us out. Any problems or issues, were very promptly and effectively dealt with...I didn't even have to chase them. Our exit was quick, refunds took some time due to overlooked issues, which Victoria Jezzard looked into personally, and all done in 3 days. Dorathy was our handler and she was ace!! "
