Bonfire Night is set to go off with a bang this weekend. Here are three events you can go to in Lincoln either Friday or Sunday:

Lincolnshire Showground

Lincolnshire Showground is holding its annual firework show on Friday, November 4. “Magnificent” and “dazzling” are just two words used to describe their previous displays, and this year is set to be no different, with a giant funfare, traditional bonfire, side shows and stalls, and children’s entertainment, including a special quieter children’s firework display for sensitive ears.

Gates open at 4pm, with the children’s display starting at 6:30pm, and the main firework spectacle at 8:45pm. Tickets at the door cost £6 for adults and £3 for children, or a family ticket for £15. Tickets & more info

Sincil Bank Stadium

Lincoln City Football Club holds the firework spectacular on Sunday, November 6, and with more than 1,900 people attending last year, this event is set to go off with a bang. The evening promises entertainment for the whole family, including stalls, food and drink, inflatables, facepainting, music, as well as a 15 minute firework extravaganza to polish off the night.
