Enjoy fireworks on Northampton Racecourse

Published: Thursday, 11 October 2018

Northampton Racecourse will once again host a spectacular fireworks display and entertainment on Sunday, 4 November between 2pm and 7.30pm.

The free event, organised by Northampton Borough Council, will open with fairground rides and food stalls, then DJ’s from Heart FM will kick off the evening’s entertainment at 4.30pm.

Popular local covers band Pure Genius will take to the stage at 5pm, followed by a fire performance and glow show at 5.45pm and the fireworks display at 6.30pm.

There is no onsite parking, but visitors can park at St Michael’s multi-storey and the Upper Mounts surface car parks, which are only a 10-15 minute walk from the Racecourse.

Footpaths across the Racecourse between St George’s Avenue and Trinity Avenue to the Kettering Road will be closed from 9am on Sunday morning while fireworks are being set up.

There will also be some disruption to roads surrounding the park from 2pm onwards as people make their way to and from the Racecourse.

Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: “Our free firework display is always really popular and we look forward to welcoming hundreds of families to the Racecourse to enjoy the range of entertainment on offer.

“With large crowds expected to attend, we ask that people park responsibly and leave plenty of time to get to the Racecourse.”
