Live entertainment announced for fireworks night in Sandwell

A great line-up of live entertainment has been announced for this year’s fireworks display and bonfire party at Dartmouth Park, West Bromwich, on Friday 1st November.

Tickets are now on sale for the event, which is themed around the 50th anniversary of two iconic moments from the 60s – the first Moon landings and the release of the album Abbey Road by The Beatles.

Live entertainment to reflect the theme of the event includes the Black Country Beatles, a popular local tribute band playing songs from Abbey Road and other albums. Other entertainment includes The Fizzog’s, James Wythes (Midlands Counties male singer of the year) and Holly Wright (Midland Counties female singer of the year) as well as Bhangra Smash Up, who are returning by popular demand.

There will be a fireworks display and a bonfire as well as junior fair, stilt walkers, food stalls, flow lights and licensed bar. 

To avoid disappointment, people are being encouraged to buy early-bird tickets online at discounted rates.

Online prices are £5 for adults, £3 for children aged two to 17, and £12 for a family ticket for two adults and up to two children. Children under the age of two go free. Gates open at 5pm, the bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the fireworks start at 7.45pm. Limited tickets will be available on the door at an increased price. Sandwell Council’s cabinet member with responsibility for leisure Councillor Maria Crompton said:

"This year’s event has a great line-up of live entertainment and there will be a real party atmosphere as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landings and the release of Abbey Road by The Beatles. 

“It will be a brilliant fireworks display and a really good night out for all the family to enjoy from junior fair, food stalls, licensed bar and much more. Please buy your tickets and come and enjoy the fun.”
