Welcome to our Award-Winning Fireworks website
FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR 2019
FIREWORKS SPECTACULAR 2019 will be on Saturday 2nd November. Being just after Hallowe’en, we’ve a bit of a scary theme going on.
As well as the usual attractions, In addition, this year there will be a scary maze in front of the Berkshire Stand, provided by Zombie Infection, where you can scare yourself as much as you like while waiting for the display to begin. Entry to the maze carries an extra fee. Tickets can be bought in advance via the Zombie Infection website or pay on entry once you’ve come into the fireworks.
In addition to the usual food and drinks, this year we will have a Gin Bar, courtesy of The Catherine Wheel in Newbury. All our drinks, hot and cold, have been moved inside the Grandstand and there will be tables for you to sit at should you so wish.
After freezing our prices last year, we have reluctantly decided to increase the entry fees this year. We have been absorbing extra costs but we found ourselves unable to help those in need earlier this year due to lack of funds. As a charity, we are dedicated to raising money to help the less fortunate and we feel that we cannot use money,given to us for this purpose, to pay ever-increasing costs.
However, we are offering a much-reduced Family Ticket, if bought in advance, as well as a reduction on the adult ticket.
Details of ticket outlets will follow when they are firmed up as well as the date when tickets go on sale.
Pre-event Tickets: £8 adult, £5 child, £20 Family (max 2+2)
On the Gate: £10 adults £5 child (5-16)
Under 5s are free
As ever we are looking for helpers and sponsors so, if you would like to get involved,please get in touch.

Here are a few quotes from the many emails and Facebook posts that we have received:
“What a fab night! This was our first time going and the kids loved it they really enjoyed the colouring and face painting keeping them busy until the fireworks started.”
“A wonderful show. Thanks must go to the presenters for their planning and time given for this charitable event. Well done all the members who helped make it so successful.”
“First time of attending the display at the racecourse and it was brilliant. Great value for money and fantastic display. Thank you.”
“It was one of the best displays it’s been our pleasure to witness. The sky over the racecourse was a kaleidoscope of colour and it was magnificent, complimented by the appropriate music.
Well done Lions Club of Newbury you deserve all the praise you get. Without the hard work of your members, giving their time, it could not happen. Thank you”
“Great show .. see you next year!”
