Bonfire Night is always one of our favourite celebrations in the calendar. We gather as communities to enjoy the toasty bonfire and watch as the sky explodes into a rainbow of colours while snacking on hot dogs. It’s just lovely, wholesome fun all around. 

As always, there are some stunning Croydon Bonfire events this year. And to help make it easier for you to have a lovely, memorable night out with the family, we’ve compiled a list of the best here for you to choose from.

Fancy a more environmentally friendly Bonfire Night in Croydon? This year, the Carshalton Park show will now feature a light and laser spectacular to replace the traditional bonfire, as a huge fire can have a huge environmental impact. Following the laser show, there’ll be the main display as usual.
