Corby firework display

The skies above Corby will be lit up with fireworks once again as the annual bonfire and fireworks display returns on Friday 4 November.

Organised by North Northamptonshire Council, the free event will take place in the area around the Boating Lake, with the bonfire being lit at 7pm, followed by an impressive firework display from 7:30pm.

Plus, following a smaller event last year (due to the pandemic) this year’s event will see the return of food stalls on site, alongside the popular torchlight procession which will leave from outside Corby International Pool at 6:45pm. 

This event is one of the highlights of the year in North Northants and previous years have seen thousands of people turning up to enjoy the festivities. Personally, I am so looking forward to joining with residents on Friday 4 November for what will be an excellent evening, perfect for the whole family.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us make this free event happen this year.
Cllr Helen Howell, the council’s Executive Member for Sport, Leisure, Culture and Tourism and Deputy Leader
It is great that the torchlight procession is able to return after we had to hold a scaled back event last year. It will be great to see everyone line Westcott Way to watch the procession, before a spectacular firework display, and I am sure there will be a brilliant atmosphere in the town as the community comes together.Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

Road closures will be in place from 6pm with no access from the BP Fourways Garage, Cottingham Road along Westcott Way.

This year’s event has been sponsored by Premier Roofing Systems Ltd, Northamptonshire Pallets Ltd and Pipelife UK Ltd.
