There is something quite magical about these spectacular displays which light up our night-time skies often to the sound of music and accompanying light displays.
From the old-fashioned Catherine Wheels to dazzling, space bound rockets, these displays captivate their audiences’ attention and leave you unwittingly spellbound.
And Bournemouth and Poole certainly know how to put on a show!
The summer fireworks of Summer Breeze and Friday Family Fiesta may have passed but there’s still Bonfire Night to look forward to, and displays take place across the region from October 31st!
But first there will be a special display in Bournemouth on Friday 24th October as part of ‘Light Up The Prom’
Friday 24th October, Bournemouth Pier
