Alexandra Palace’s huge annual firework festival is back with a bang.
See, not only will it play host to what has to be one of London’s finest firework displays – they’re also promising a bonfire; live music; street food; a funfair; an ice rink; DJs; and more.
Anyone who’s been to Ally Pally previously will know it boasts a pretty spectacular panoramic view of London on any day of the week, however nothing compares to when it’s lit-up by a series of dazzlingly multi-coloured whips, crackles, and bangs.
If the weather’s particularly cold – after a quick whip around the ice rink, and a couple of retro rides at the fairground – you can head to Alexandra Palace’s recently renovated Victorian theatre where you’ll be able to catch film screenings in a plush setting of restored grandeur.
Should you get peckish, you can head over to StrEATlife Village where not only will you find an array of street food vendors and booze, you’ll also find music of both the live and DJ’d variety. The folks behind German Bier Festival will also be making an appearance, filling the Great Hall with an army of lederhosen-clad waiters, serving the finest German Bier.
Hey, if you don’t want to go…
