Farnham Fireworks & Torchlit Procession will come back with a big bang this Saturday (November 5), with more food, drink and entertainment than ever before.
Cheaper advance tickets (£10 adults, £5 children, £25 families) are on sale now for the largest fundraising event in Farnham Round Table’s calendar.
Last year’s bumper display attracted a record number of visitors and raised an incredible £60,000 – with all proceeds shared out among local good causes.
The food village at Farnham Park will open at 5pm, with more food vendors than ever before offering everything from gourmet burgers to German sausages, paella, Thai noodles, vegan street food, churros, candy floss, a Hogs Back Brewery bar and hot drinks.
Entertainment will also be laid on throughout the evening, including live music by ska band Jungle Brew on the main stage, Taiko drummers and fire performers.
The Reading Pipers Band will lead a traditional torchlit procession up Castle Street and into Farnham Park. This year the procession will set off from Waggon Yard car park at 6.15pm where flaming torches will be sold.
The car park will be closed to traffic, as will Castle Street for the procession, but parking is available at Central, Maltings, Lower and Upper Hart car parks.
Schools across the area are already busy designing their Guys for the Guy contest, which will be judged prior to the lighting of the bonfire at 7.15pm. This will be followed by the blockbuster 15-minute firework display. The food village will remain open until 9pm.
The proceeds of this year’s ticket sales will again be shared between local good causes supported by Farnham Round Table, which will also be collecting on the night for the Royal Surrey County Hospital’s Cancer and Surgical Innovation Centre appeal.
