The Heron Inn Riverside Fireworks, Malpas Truro - 27th October 

A firework display with a difference! Who needs a field when you can set off your fireworks from a boat? That's Truro's twist! Being set off from a large barge anchored in the river, the Heron Inn gives the most spectacular viewing point!

Due to the tide times this year, the display has been scheduled slightly earlier than usual. However, because this means the fireworks will now be closer to Halloween, they've adopted that as their theme! We can't wait to see their spooky take on this winter staple!

Driftwood Spars - 5th November

St Agnes' popular event is back with a bang! With festivities commencing from around 6pm, we recommend getting their early to make the most of the evening entertainment (...and mulled wine!) before the fireworks begin!

With entertainment for the kids, fab live music and, of course, scrumptious food, the fireworks are almost incidental to your evening of fun! 


Polperro Quay - 3rd November

We love the intimate, Cornish village, feel of this spectacular display! Set off from the Quay at 7:30pm, the fireworks framed above the sea is a stunning sight. 

Join the fun from 6:30pm with a delicious BBQ. There will also be a 'Best Guy' competition if you'll feeling creative! If the weather is looking a bit chilly, we recommend huddling round the huge bonfire that's lit on the beach. Now, where's those marshmallows..! 


Newquay Harbour - 5th November

Remember, remember the 5th of November!

Head down to Newquay Harbour on Bonfire Night where the sky will be lit up by a stunning fireworks display.

This display is particularly impressive thanks to its seaside setting... The bright lights of the fireworks ripple across the water of the harbour - a sight that'll stick with you for a long time to come!
