Events will be held in Ravenscourt Park and Bishops Park
October 2, 2023
Hammersmith & Fulham is celebrating bonfire night with London’s largest ever immersive laser light show, taking place simultaneously in two local parks - Bishops Park in Fulham and Ravenscourt Park in Hammersmith.
Tickets are on sale now for the Fawkes Festival extravaganza, taking place on Friday 3 November and Saturday 4 November.
The high-tech, multi-coloured laser light shows will be themed around ‘a night at the movies’ with a soundtrack consisting of a compilation of much-loved film scores and classic movie music. The kaleidoscope of colours will be created with special effects, synchronised lights, and flames.
There will be three shows each night to make sure everyone gets to enjoy it, and each ticket gives access to all three viewings on the night at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm.
H&F Council says the display has been choreographed by technical experts 21CC Group and GC Live, whose lighting designer previously worked on the 2012 Olympics opening and closing ceremonies, London’s New Year’s Eve celebrations and the Qatar World Cup’s opening ceremony.
Both parks will also host a children’s funfair, illuminous face painting, LED Stilt Walkers, UV bubble displays and performers. There will be food and drink from Urban Food Fest on offer, including gallons of hot chocolate and marshmallows to keep visitors warm.
Tickets for the show are priced £13.88 for adults - £12 plus £1.88 booking fee - and £9.45 for children aged four to 15 - £8 plus £1.45 booking fee. It’s free for kids aged three and under and a donation from each ticket sold will go towards planting trees across the UK.
H&F Council also promises there will be chances to win solo and family tickets to the show and advises keeping an eye on its Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages.
