*** Franklin’s Gardens have confirmed that our drive-in Fireworks display on November 7 has unfortunately been cancelled, due to the nationwide month-long lockdown announced by the Government. All ticket purchasers will be automatically refunded via their original payment method within the next 30 days. ***
Franklin’s Gardens is set to host the most spectacular fireworks display in Northampton in 2020 – with tickets for the drive-in event now on general sale!
While the stadium’s hallowed turf might be more used to showcasing explosive offloads and thunderous tackles, the Gardens will instead be lit up on Saturday 7 November by an almighty array of pyrotechnics.
Gates will open from 5pm onwards with the fireworks show set for 6.30pm in Car Park D and provided by industry specialists Entertainment Effects.
A socially-distanced entertainment experience, Fireworks at Franklin’s Gardens will be a unique drive-in event where you can enjoy the display from the comfort and safety of your own car.
Franklin’s Gardens has also partnered with local radio station N-Live, who will broadcast live from the show so spectators can tune in on their car radios and play the accompanying playlist for the fireworks display.
This event is dependent on prevailing government guidance at the scheduled date, and therefore is subject to change.
Book with confidence – refunds will be offered if for any reason the event cannot go ahead as planned.
