5 Reasons To Go To Alexandra Palace's Fireworks Festival

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Alexandra Palace.

On 4 and 5 November, the epic fireworks festival at Ally Pally returns, now with an extra day added due to public demand.

Tickets are selling fast, so grab yours at fireworks.london to get a full day of Bonfire Night fun for your money.

Much more than just a fireworks display, here are five things to look out for at Alexandra Palace Fireworks Festival:

1. Firework and laser display

Of course there’s the incredible firework display itself, this year bigger and better than ever.

What's more, Alexandra Palace's unique vantage point means the entire London skyline becomes the backdrop to the show.

There will also be a laser display, which will light up the sky and map Ally Pally's iconic building.

2. The German Bier Festival

As well as one of the finest firework displays in London there's also a huge German Bier Festival (additional ticket required).

Drink some of the finest German Biers, accompanied by live entertainment all day from a traditional oompah band as well as London's famous pop DJs, Club de Fromage.

Headline acts from tribute bands top off the cheesy fun, with a Bowie tribute on Friday and Queen on Saturday.

3. Day of the Dead parade

Feast your eyes on a Day of the Dead spectacle featuring Lady Layton's Big Band Extravaganza, marching bands from New Orleans, an amazing 20-piece drum machine, fire dancers, Aztec Angels, giant illuminated colourful skeletons and even the actual puppets used in James Bond film, Spectre.

This will be the largest and most spectacular Day of the Dead parade seen in London.

4. Street food and craft beer village

With more street food and bars than ever before, foodies can truly indulge at the Fireworks Festival.

Revellers can enjoy food from a huge variety of London’s top traders, plus many fully stocked bars will be serving mulled wine, craft beer and more.

5. Family Zone and giant bonfire

The dedicated family area provides the perfect place for even the little ones to enjoy the fireworks away from the hustle of the main walkways.

In the Family Zone, you can huddle around the giant bonfire, the ideal place to keep warm on a November evening.

Independent food stalls, fully-stocked bars, face painting for the little ones and even a kids' funfair are sure to keep the whole family entertained.
