Coronavirus: council service information and advice

Information about changes to council services as a result of coronavirus

Our annual fireworks display at King George V playing fields will take place on Wednesday 6 November.

The children's funfair opens at 4pm and the bonfire will be lit at 7pm.  The fireworks display will start at 7:30pm following the countdown from Deputy Lord Mayor of Portsmouth.  This year's display has been supplied by Pains Fireworks and there's also stalls selling hot food & refreshments.

Cllr Steve Pitt, Portsmouth City Council's Cabinet Member for Culture and City Development said: "The fireworks display is always popular and attracts lots of people from across the city so get there early to enjoy the spectacular display."

Visitors are asked not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the display for health and safety reasons.


Car parking will be available at Lakeside for £2.  

Please avoid crossing Western Road which is a high speed road.  There are pedestrian subways available at either end of Western Road.

Cosham train station is located five minutes away and there are bus stops adjacent to the field on Northern Road.  Please note that a road closure will be in place on Northern Road for approximately 20 minutes following the end of the fireworks.
