It’s this time of year when I normally list all the bonfire night and firework displays taking place across London in November — but this year is very different.

Most venues are cancelling, or haven’t committed to anything yet — but, at time of writing, three venues seem to be going ahead with firework displays.

Crystal Palace, Kingston and Warlingham — so far, seem to be planning to put on a display.

I’ve gone through the list of venues who normally have fireworks and marked those who have definitely cancelled their displays, or marked as TBA where they haven’t made a firm statement yet.

It’s likely that those of us without a back garden to have their own fireworks display will do well to find somewhere high and watch the skyline in a socially distanced manner for the domestic displays going off.

Maybe this will be the year of the sparkler instead.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    It looks like Kingston is now showing as cancelled:

  2. Maurice Reed says:

    Not sure if the big one behind the town hall in Walthamstow is on or not.

  3. MilesT says:

    St. Albans has been made free and “reimagined”, to be visible city wide (from homes?)

    I mention St Albans because it’s normally fairly convenient to get to from London on fast Thameslink trains (plus a 10 minute walk to Verulam Park), and even more convenient from the Abbey line trains (which stop very close to the park).

    Crystal Palace has been cancelled
