Firework display tickets on sale

SPECIAL advance tickets offering families cut price entry to this year’s Erewash Borough Council Bonfire and Fireworks Display are now on sale.

The annual event on Friday, November 4, at West Park in Long Eaton, will feature a procession of local schoolchildren with large, illuminated puppets, the usual bonfire and the borough’s biggest firework spectacular.

Adults can also snap up advance tickets for £3.90 instead of £5 and the over-60s and under-16s can buy tickets for £1.70 instead of £2.50. Admission is free for children five and under.
