Guy Fawkes Night in Wales

Your guide to Firework Displays across Wales for 2021.

After last years’ Guy Fawkes Night celebrations were cancelled across Wales due to the pandemic, we are hopeful the welsh night sky will be illuminated this year on November 5th. Unfortunately this might not be the case everywhere, read on to find out what displays are going ahead and which have sadly been postponed for another year.

Cardiff: Sparks in the Park – Bute Park (Cancelled)

Starting off with a big blow. Sadly one of the biggest annual firework displays in Wales and a staple of Winter events in Cardiff won’t be going ahead for the 2nd year running. This was announced back in August on the Sparks in the Park Facebook page.

The charity are hopeful that they will be able to host the magnificent night next year, inviting all visitors back for November 2022. So for now we will just have to keep our fingers crossed for 2022.

Conwy: Llandudno Firework Display – Confirmed

Hooray! Some more positive news, the Llandudno Town Council have confirmed that the display will be going ahead. It’s being held at the North Shore Beach, Llandudno on Sunday 7th November at 18:20pm, with a backup date of Monday 8th November at 17:00pm should there be any adverse weather conditions.

Cardiff: Sophiaworks! – Confirmed

Sophie Gardens is delighted to announce that their annual firework display will be going ahead as planned. It is being held at Sophia Gardens on November 5th, doors open 17:30PM

Unlike last year’s event (which was postponed due to the pandemic) this year is expected to sell out completely similar to years 2018 and 2019.

The Gardens where it is being held are open from 17:30 on the day of the display, with the display itself starting at 19:15pm. There are plenty of stalls to get food and drink and displays to admire.

Head of commercial, Huw Warren, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be able to bring back Sophiaworks after missing out last year.

Tickets purchased on the day start at £9 for adults with a family ticket available for £25.

Swansea: Swansea Council’s Fireworks Display – Confirmed

After moving annual Swansea’s Spectacular Firework Display from St Helens to Swansea Bay, the Swansea Council have been able to confirm that the display will in fact be taking place this year. On November 12th and best of all… It’s FREE!!

The free to attend event will be open from 18:00 – 20:00. With food and drink stalls located at both Cenotaph and Civic Centre areas. The fireworks will be launching at 19:00 sharp so don’t be late!

Barry: Barry Island Firework Fiesta – Cancelled

With the year we’ve had, it’s no surprise that it isn’t smiles all round for the residents of Vale of Glamorgan. The organisers of the annual Barry Island Firework Fiesta have sadly taken to Facebook to announce the cancellation of their annual firework fiesta.

However, there is a silver lining. The team are now moving their focus to coming up with ideas as to alternative celebration methods, which will involve certain parks and monuments in and around “Barry” being lit up throughout the month of November in what their team has dubbed the “Festival of Light”.
