Whether you are young, old or somewhere in between, there’s something mesmerising about fireworks. Wrapping up warm and heading out into the autumn night to watch the sky light up with colourful whizzes, pops and bangs is an annual tradition for most. From sparklers to Catherine wheels, Roman candles to rockets, firework night signals the end of pumpkin season and the start of the approach to Christmas.

Find fun and fireworks at the annual spectacular

If you’re a fan of fireworks, then don’t miss this year’s Derby Firework Night and Fun Fair. Every year, thousands flock to The Incora, the city’s county cricket ground, to see a dazzling display of pyrotechnics guaranteed to thrill. But the fun isn’t limited to just fireworks, as a huge fun fair full of rides and games is also on offer. There will be musical entertainment as well as tasty treats. This year’s event will take place on November 3, with gates and the funfair opening at 4pm and fireworks starting after 7pm.
