Light up your life with lo­cal fire­work shows

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

FIRE­WORKS will light up the skies this week­end as peo­ple gather to cel­e­brate Bon­fire Night.

With Novem­ber 5 fall­ing on a Mon­day this year, many com­mu­ni­ties are host­ing their cel­e­bra­tions over the week­end.

One event likely to at­tract a big crowd is the fire­works and bon­fire ex­trav­a­ganza at Orm­skirk Cricket Club on Satur­day.

Gates open at the club, on Brooks Lane, at 5pm, with the bon­fire lit an hour later and the fire­works be­gin­ning at 7pm. En­try costs £5 for adults and £3 for chil­dren over the age of five and food and drink will be avail­able.

In Lathom, the Plough pub is hold­ing its fourth an­nual fire­work dis­play on Satur­day.

The fire­works start at 7.30pm and there will be rides, sparklers, face paint­ing, sweet stalls and games for chil­dren.

There will also be a bar­be­cue, hog roast and a sec­ond bar with draft beer and cask ale on the car park from 5pm.

Tick­ets sold on the night cost £4.50 for adults and £2.50 for chil­dren.

They can also be bought in ad­vance from the pub, sav­ing 50p per ticket.

Once again, Hal­sall’s St Cuth­bert’s Pri­mary School on New Street will host a bon­fire party on Mon­day, Novem­ber 5, from 6pm. Gates open at 6pm and tick­ets are avail­able from the school of­fice or can be bought on the day.

Although South­port Hes­keth Round Ta­ble has been un­able to host its usual bon­fire and fire­works in South­port this year, there are plenty of other events around South­port as well as the West Lan­cashire area.

One such event likely to prove pop­u­lar is South­port Plea­sure­land’s Day of the Dead Fes­ti­val, which runs on both Satur­day and Sun­day. Fea­tur­ing live mu­sic, Mex­i­can street food and a gin bar, the event is de­signed to suit all the fam­ily.

The South­port theme park will be open from 1pm, with en­ter­tain­ment be­gin­ning at 4pm.

En­try is free be­fore 6pm and costs £5 af­ter that time.

At South­port Rugby Club, the en­ter­tain­ment also in­cludes live mu­sic from first team cap­tain’s Dan Whalen’s band Out­side Hu­man, while there will also be a se­lec­tion of bouncy cas­tles, in­clud­ing wipe­out and an as­sault course.

That event takes place on Fri­day night, with doors open­ing at 6pm and fire­works ex­pected to be­gin at 7.45pm.

The Lake­side Church in South­port will again host a free bon­fire on Satur­day and or­gan­is­ers are promis­ing more fire­works than ever be­fore.

The event runs at 5-7pm and will in­clude a hog roast.

There is a Bon­fire Night cel­e­bra­tion some­where near you – most of them over the week­end
