Opening Times

Season (5 Nov 2022)

Remember, remember the fifth of November! 

On Tuesday 5 November, Plymouth Hoe will be lit up with a spectacular Bonfire and Fireworks display. 

The evening celebrations will begin at 4pm, with fairground rides and delicious food and drink on offer. The presenters of Radio Plymouth will be there to entertain with an exciting music programme on stage from 6pm.

Located near to Smeaton’s Tower lighthouse, you'll find the huge bonfire, built using pallets from Bandvulc – don't miss it being lit at 7.30pm. You will also spot Guy Fawkes sitting on top of the bonfire!

A fantastic firework display will also take place, with an assortment of rockets, fountains and firecrackers firing from the Royal Citadel at 8pm. 

It’s a truly family friendly event, so wrap up warm, bask in the heat of the giant bonfire and enjoy the show.
