Get ready to ‘ooh and ahh’ at Astley Park’s fireworks display


Families are invited to Chorley’s Astley Park on Friday 3 November for the return of the town’s fantastic fireworks display and bonfire.

Chorley Council is once again organising the family event but with the addition of music to make it a spectacular pyro musical display that will see the fireworks ‘dance’ in the sky.

The event will take place on Astley Park’s playing fields from 6.30pm on Friday 3 November with the bonfire being lit at 7pm and the fireworks display launching at 7.30pm. There will be some food stalls for people to grab a quick bite to eat and attendees are being encouraged to come dressed for the weather and ground conditions.

Entry to the event is free but there will be collection buckets with voluntary donations going to the Mayor of Chorley’s charities, which include Lancashire Mind and Young Addaction.

Councillor Peter Wilson, who oversees events at Chorley Council, said: “If you like a great, traditional bonfire, spectacular fireworks display and a great evening out for all the family, come along to Astley Park on Friday 3 November.

“The fireworks display will last just over 10 minutes and will be even better this year with music to add to the occasion. Whether you attended last year or not, we’ve been promised a display that’s equally as impressive as previous years and it always looks spectacular against the backdrop of Astley Hall.

“We’re encouraging people to have a safe and enjoyable time over the Halloween and Bonfire period and there’s no better way of doing that than attending an organising event with family and friends.”

Anyone attending the bonfire and fireworks event in Astley Park on Friday 3 November is being advised to park in Chorley town centre, where parking will be free after 5pm. The paths from the Park Road and Queens Road entrances to the park will have some lighting to help families find their way to the playing fields.

There will be limited parking on Hallgate car park and restrictions will be put in place across Astley Village.
