Houses of Parliament Bonfire 2018

Our 2018 Houses of Parliament Bonfire about to go up in smoke!


All the traditional joys of the festival at Wivenhoe’s family friendly, traditional bonfire night: a spectacular display by industry experts Dynamics Fireworks, complemented by fire performers and a gloriously imaginative themed bonfire, all in a well-enclosed venue (offering excellent disabled access and viewing area, and a quiet room with great views of the fireworks) with a First Aid Team and lots of stewards around to keep your family safe.

Look out for our supervised sparkler area, yummy campfire-style s’mores, glow-toys that don’t cost the earth, and delicious and affordable food all freshly prepared on the day using locally sourced ingredients.

Getting to Wivenhoe

• By bus: Buses No. 61, 62 or 87 go to Wivenhoe from Colchester town centre (61 and 62 also from Colchester Station), via the University of Essex. Buses are very frequent and run 7 days a week.
• By train: Trains from Colchester Town centre, Colchester Station, and London Liverpool Street all go to Wivenhoe. From the other direction trains run from Clacton-on-Sea and Walton-on-the-Naze. Trains run once or twice an hour.
• Walk: follow the Wivenhoe trail from Colchester town centre and the Hythe down to Wivenhoe.
• Cycle: the Wivenhoe trail is part of the National Cycle route 51. Use of cycles on this path is permissive, so be aware of walkers on this popular walking route.
• Car: Access to Wivenhoe is off the A133 from Colchester. Parking is limited in the narrow streets so consider public transport which is easily accessible and frequent.
• Ferry: the Wivenhoe ferry, operated by volunteers, runs in the warmer months from Rowhedge. The Brightlingsea ferry occasionally also goes to Wivenhoe.
