Firework display is back with a bang

Organising group Royal Tunbridge Wells Round Table last year raised more than £30,000 for good causes from the spectacle, and organisers hope to do even better this year.

The fireworks display, one of the most popular events in the town, returns on Saturday November 2.

More than 30 charities and good causes benefited from last year’s firework display, including Oakley School, Tunbridge Wells Welcomes Refugees, Sherwood Men’s Shed, The Number One Community Trust, DAVSS, Community Car Service, COMPAID, TW Crisis Recovery, IMAGO, and TWMHR (mental health hub).

Fireworks will begin from 7pm, and doors will open from 5.30pm.

Charities are invited to approach the Round Table for funding for their project, with giveaways set to be presented in a function next year.

Fireworks committee member Andrew Mockford said: “We’re committed to giving the people of Tunbridge Wells and beyond a great evening of entertainment, whilst enabling them to give something back to the local community. The longevity of our event is testimony to the public’s generosity. 

“Over the past year, we’ve been in the privileged position of being able to fulfil requests from several more worthy causes. Without the public’s continuing support, this wouldn’t have been possible. As we approach our 62nd fireworks display, we continue work to ensure we provide another fantastic occasion and successful year.”


The event is being sponsored for the fifth successive year by Buss Murton Law, and Times newspapers are again involved as media sponsors.

Tickets are £6 and £4 for adults and children respectively in advance, or £8 and £5 on the day. They are also being sold in Fiveways in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday’s leading up to the event.
