Fireworks and Bonfire Night in Dorset

Remember Remember the 5th of November!

If you’re getting excited about this time of year, you’re not alone!

As the weather gets colder and the evenings get darker, there’s nothing more comforting than that warm feeling of a glorious bonfire. Dig out your mittens and wrap up warm, it’s time to get your loved ones together for an abundance of dazzling displays, shows and entertainment. Thrilling atmospheres will fill the county this autumn along with spectacular colours twirling through the night sky.

Dorset's dazzling firework displays 

Start your celebrations with a bang at one of Dorset’s many anticipated displays in 2021. Across Dorset, skies will explode with eye-popping colours and ears will tingle with the sound of whizz, fizzle and pop!

Head over to Lyme Regis and watch in awe as the night sky comes alive above the sea or enjoy a night of entertainment and live music at Sherborne Castle's firework extravaganza! 

Lots of Guy Fawkes events and celebrations will be taking place in Weymouth and it will all culminate in a fabulous free firework display over Weymouth's moonlit bay. Take advantage of the great vibes and get involved with the festivities. Fairground rides, scrumptious food and drink and children's activities will add some extra sparkle to your evening.

In Poole watch the fireworks go off with a bang from the Quay or take a boat trip out into the Harbour to get a better view.

Grab a warm beverage, sit back and enjoy the show!
