The traditional Preston Grasshoppers Bonfire and Fireworks display takes place on Wednesday, November 5th at Lightfoot Green.
The largest organised community bonfire night in Preston is once again likely to draw large crowds of families for the fantastic display by the award winning Preston based Phenomenal Fireworks. As usual there will be a fantastic fairground plus food and drink available. This years event is sponsored by Preston based fireplace suppliers Burning Desires.
Last year the ground’s capacity was reached and some people had to be turned away at the gate. This year Hoppers have once again teamed up with Skiddle.com, Preston’s events and festivals ticketing specialists, to provide a ticket sales and ground entry system.
