Fireworks

A not-to-be-missed fixture in the Wimbledon Calendar

November 6th 2021

Every November the sky above King’s College School in Wimbledon comes to light with a stunning display of fireworks and a light show set to the year’s popular soundtracks. The November display has rightly earned its own place in the diary of world class events hosted by Wimbledon Village every year. First staged over 15 years ago, it has since become a local tradition attracting 5000 spectators from across South West London and Surrey to enjoy hot dogs, circus entertainment and music from the live stage. It is a terrific opportunity for Wimbledon High Street businesses to welcome the influx of crowds that the night brings.

Our event relies heavily on the parent volunteers who support us every year by contributing a little bit of their time to build the event.  This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved, learn about the event, meet other parents in the year group and become your child’s hero for having an ‘in’ at the Fireworks tuck or glow shops.  Become your own hero by joining bar, bbq or the very rough and tough event break-down rota.  We welcome you.
