Fireworks 2011

Chawton is once again holding its popular bonfire and fireworks event on Saturday 5th of November.

The event is held at Chawton Cricket club, behind the main recreational ground. Access and viewing is via the recreational ground opposite the school, or from the village car park. We open at 6:00, the bonfire will be lit at 6:20 with the fireworks following once the bonfire is going well and people have stopped arriving.

The event will feature :

  • The Bonfire
  • Free sparkers for children
  • Glow-bands for children
  • Hot and cold drinks (tea, coffee, soft drinks, beer)
  • Hot food - hot dogs & soup
  • The fireworks

We will have plenty of people serving food this year and beers are back.

We hope you enjoy our fireworks night and would like to stress that the event is funded solely by donations on the day, so please give generously so that we can continue to run this event in future years. We recommend a donation of £5-£10 per adult (accompanied children free) - but you are very welcome to donate more. The more you give, the bigger the spectacle we can provide next year.

If you wish to bring your own sparklers, these must be lit in the designated area - both for safety reasons for others and to help minimise the clear up the following day.

Free parking is provided in the village car park and on-street. Please do not park in the pub car park unless you are planning to eat there, nor on the village green, since we need to maintain access during the event for emergency access.

If you have materials for the bonfire, please take these to "Simons strip" (by the stream)

We are building the bonfire during the morning from about 9:30am and our annual clear-up takes place from 9:00 on the Sunday morning, all are welcome to come along and help.
