Fireworks Exploding over the Bandstand in Castle Park


The spectacular annual fireworks display in Colchester's Castle Park returns for its (slightly delayed) 50th anniversary. Hosted by local charity King Coels' Kittens, this hugely popular event is certain to sell out. 

Alongside the impressive fireworks display there will be entertainment, and parading of the guy. A perfect family evening out!
