Batheaston Bonfire Night and Fireworks at your Fence are back!
Saturday 6th November.
Last year we ran the “Fireworks at your Fence” event which brought the villages of Batheaston, Bathford and Bathampton together during the pandemic.
The cheer at the end of the display from all three villages was one of those rare uplifting COVID moments!
This year we understand that a number of people are still wary of meeting in public places while others are desperate for life to return to normal.
This year we have devised a plan to allow you to do either!
Local Business Sponsors

Option 1: Fireworks at your Fence
If you had a great view and private party last year then you can repeat it again this year. We are using a firing site very close to last year’s. You can double-check your best viewing location using the button below. The fireworks will appear at around 7pm.
All we ask is that you donate via our crowdfunding page before the event.
Option 2: Batheaston Bonfire Night
Come and join us for an in-person event at a new location in the middle of the Northend Village for a large Bonfire and a bar
The gates will open at 6 pm but you must have a ticket before you arrive. Once you have donated to the crowdfunder page you must complete the second step and tell us how many tickets you want.
New for 2021 – How much you donate and how many tickets you want is up to you – we ask you to be as generous as possible with your donations but understand this means different things to different people.
The location has a great view of the fireworks and will give you the opportunity to catch up with friends and enjoy the spectacle together.
The COVID situation is still dynamic and so there are several options for our field event depending on where we are on the 6th of November. More details will be included on this page as we get closer to the event but we will need to limit the number of people in the field so once all the tickets have gone you will have to enjoy them from your own fence.
