FIREWORKS 2018: Everything You Need To Know

Our annual community fireworks display is today! All of us here at Wild Wolf ESU are very excited for our tenth 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 today’s event.

If you didn’t manage to book online, don’t worry, tickets for both the Low-Noise and Feature Displays will be available to buy on the gate tonight. 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:

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

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.

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 activities for children, a classic campfire, and another bonfire specially dedicated to marshmallow toasting. Brand new this year, we also have a brilliant selection of musicians performing live throughout the evening. The event is mostly run by Wild Wolf, but we’ve also got a few other Units coming in to lend a hand – the full list of stalls is below:

BBQ (meat & veggie)
Hog roast
Sausages by the campfire
Hot Drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate, mulled apple juice)
Glow Sticks
Marshmallow toasting
Cakes & Bakes
Toffee Apples
Norwegian waffles
Bouncy Castle
Tuck Shop
Krispy Kreme doughnuts

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! 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.

While our fingers are crossed for dry skies tonight, 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.

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.

Almost all of Scout Park is accessible by wheelchair, but given the outdoor nature of the site the ground may become muddy and slippery, so please keep this in mind.

We’ll be updating our social media throughout the day and the event, so make sure you’re following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date with what’s going on! We’ll also be uploading a video of the event to our YouTube Channel on Sunday, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, check out last year’s video below, to get an idea of what the event will be like!

We hope that has cleared up any queries you may have had, but if not, feel free to contact us here. There will also be an Info Tent at the event for any questions or concerns (or positive feedback!).

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