Fawkes in The Walks returns to King’s Lynn next week.

The free event, now in its eighth year, will take place on Friday, November 4.

The display usually attracts thousands of residents and visitors to The Walks for a bonfire, dazzling fireworks display, stalls and rides.

The evening will start at 6pm and West Norfolk Mayor, David Whitby, is to light the bonfire at 6.30pm.

The main fireworks display will follow at 8pm.

The evening has been organised by West Norfolk Council and cabinet member Elizabeth Nockolds said: “The Walks makes a fantastic venue for this popular event, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy an amazing firework display in a controlled and safe environment.

“Fawkes in The Walks is the perfect way for the whole family to celebrate bonfire night.”

There will be a voluntary collection during the evening to help cover costs and charges  may be made for some of the other attractions.

Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult and people have been advised not to bring pets to the park.

The entrance to The Walks from Seven Sisters/Extons Road will be closed on the evening from 7.45pm.

Anyone planning to enter the park from that area has been asked to use the Tennyson Avenue entrance.

If the event has to be cancelled for any reason, an announcement will be made on Lynn’s KL.FM radio station.
