Fireworks in Farnham, Surrey and Surrounding areas! We are spoilt for choice! So I thought I would compile a list of the nearest ones to us here in Farnham.
A family fireworks event is a really fun way to kick of the start of our dark Autumn/winter nights.
I always think, if I don’t make it out on Guyfalks night I am going to have a particularly lazy winter indeed!
For us it’s always the first official night we dig out out our warmest coats, hats, gloves and boots.
Our family favourite has always been Farnham Park and the torch lit procession leading from Central car park up to the park along Castle Street.
I had a look on my blog to find a family photoshoot in Farnham Park to share with you here and discovered I haven’t yet posted one! I will have to rectify that soon as I have photographed a number of Farnham families in our local big park.
My Husband has fond memories of the big bonfire at Chiddingfold Green, which I have listed here too.
Here’s a list of what’s happening in and around the Farnham area.
Check the timings and ticket prices/availability on the official links given here at the bottom of each listed event, especially as some have limited ticket entry only.
