FIREWORKS 2017: Everything You Need to Know

Our annual community fireworks display is THIS SATURDAY! All of us here at Wild Wolf ESU are very excited for our ninth display, which promises to be the best one yet – and we hope that you are too! To help you plan your visit, we’ve put together this handy guide of all the things you could possibly need to know for Saturday’s event.

TICKETS:
If you didn’t manage to book online, don’t worry, tickets for both the Quiet and Feature Displays will be available to buy on the gate on the night. However please note we will only be able to accept cash payments at the event, not debit/credit cards.

The on-the-gate ticket prices are below:

Quiet Display (5:30pm) Feature Display (8:00pm)
Adult (18+) £5 £6
Child
(6-17)
£4 £5
Under 6 Free Free

TIMINGS:
We recommend you come when the gates open to avoid disappointment – once the park reaches capacity we will have to stop admitting people. Not only that, but arriving early also gives you a chance to visit all the stalls on offer and make the most of the evening! There’s plenty to do, so make sure to leave lots of time to enjoy our delicious food, relax by the campfire, and soak up the atmosphere. Please note that advance tickets only guarantee you entry up until 30 minutes before the fireworks go off. Scout Park will also close as soon as the fireworks finish, so it’s definitely worth arriving early to take advantage of everything we’ve got planned.

QUIET DISPLAY – gates open 4:00pm, fireworks 5:30pm

FEATURE DISPLAY – gates open 6:00pm, fireworks 8:00pm

See our event schedule for more information.

STALLS:
A number of stalls will be available throughout both displays, planned and run by Scouts from all over London. All our food and drink are very reasonably priced – we know feeding a family adds up! – and are sourced locally. There will also be games for children, a classic campfire, and another bonfire specially dedicated to marshmallow toasting. The event is mostly run by Wild Wolf, but this year we’ve got a few other Units coming in to lend a hand – the full list of stalls is below:

Hot Food (meat & veggie burgers, meat & veggie hot dogs, pulled pork baps, falafel rolls, halloumi burgers) – run by WWESU
Hot Drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, mulled apple juice) – run by WWESU
Glow Sticks – run by WWESU
Marshmallow toasting – run by WWESU
Cakes & Bakes – run by Tottenham ESU
Toffee Apples – run by Tottenham ESU
Popcorn – run by Kings Cross ESU
Norwegian waffles – run by North London Network
Bouncy Castle – run by Argo ESU
Tuck Shop – run by the 2019 WSJ Unit
Krispy Kreme doughnuts – run by 8th Muswell Hill Scouts
Kids’ Games – run by Phoenix ESU
Candyfloss – run by 8th Holborn Scouts

LOCATION & TRAVEL:
The event takes place at Scout Park, our regular meeting place. The address is Scout Park, Gordon Road, N11 2PB. Unfortunately there will be no on-site parking, and we anticipate that the surrounding streets will fill up pretty quickly. However, not to worry, as there is plenty of public transport nearby. Bounds Green tube station (Piccadilly Line) is only a few minutes’ walk away, as are the 184, 299, 102 and 221 bus routes.

WEATHER:
While our fingers are crossed for dry skies on Saturday night, there’s always the chance that it might rain. The event will be going ahead whatever the weather, so don’t let any grey skies put you off! However we would like to remind you that it is an outdoor event, and as such the ground may be muddy and the weather cold, so we recommend you wear sturdy footwear and warm clothing on the night.

SAFETY:
Every effort is made to ensure the site is as safe as possible for the event. As a result, please note that no fireworks, alcohol, or sparklers are allowed in the park. Similarly, Scout Park is strictly smoking-free (including e-cigarettes) and no dogs are allowed on site apart from assistance dogs. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

ANY QUESTIONS?
We hope that has cleared up any queries you may have had, but if not, feel free to email us at wildwolfesufireworks@gmail.com. There will also be an Info Tent on the day for any questions or concerns (or positive feedback!).

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you to our Fireworks Display on Saturday night!
