Lions in Bodmin are part
of the joint committee that organizes the Nov 5th firework event
in Priory Park each year,
We believe it to be the best Nov 5th display in North Cornwall & at a Great price.
Update 14th March 2016
Profits from the 2016
fireworks display were handed out at Bodmin football club on Mon 13th
Unfortunately yet again some cheques were uncollected, the money will be reallocated to other causes.

Priory Park Fence
No Zones for 2016
Another very good display by
our firework providers Neon Pyrotechnics all set to the film score music
of John Williams. The sound system was, I think, the best we have had &
projected the sound to all parts of the park.
We had good suport from you all with crowd numbers about the same as last year, not bad being we clashed with other firework events.
As usual we will distribute profits in Feb
We have been working hard since last year for a better solution to crowd safety & site management. With the cooperation of Bodmin Football Club we are putting addition gates in the fence to allow full access across the park, No More Zones.
fireworks display will held at our usual venue, Priory park, on
Saturday the 5th November 2016 .
So gather up your children or grandchildren or get together with your friends and enjoy this years fabulous display which is on course to be the biggest and best in the whole of North Cornwall.
The big news this year
is, we are able to get rid of the zones that we were forced to
implement last year. You will be able once again to move freely
around the whole of the site[ grandstand not included ] and enjoy
all the stalls and rides that are present.
For your convenience have also decided keep the fair rides for older children and adults to enjoy over on the football club side of the site. and the rides etc for the younger children will be predominantly on the hard standing old tennis courts with entry advised for there, via priory road. And for this year, for the first time there will be a wine, and mulled wine stall available for the adults to enjoy on the priory rd side.
With all the upheaval on the roads this year we will endeavor to improve the signage for the entry points. Please look us up on Facebook and twitter for the latest news and information.
The display will be
accompanied by music, and this years theme is film scores written by
John Williams. These include the following great film soundtracks;
The star wars theme, Close encounters of the third kind, Harry
potter, hedwig's theme, The superman theme, Jaws, Jurassic park, ET,
Raiders of the lost ark and The imperial march [star wars]
Some great music to accompany the fireworks I am sure you would agree!
So come on get there early and make a great evening of it!
The gates will open at
6pm with the choosing of the guy and lighting of the bonfire taking
place at 7pm
The firework display will commence at 7.30pm.

Update 6th Nov 2015
The 2015 fireworks did
happen, what a day, but the evening apart from the ground being very wet
& muddy was quite good.
The weather during the setup & clearance did cause lots of problems but the volunteer team of the fireworks committee got the job done.
First indications are crowd numbers were down on the record numbers of last year, may have been the weather, the zoneing, or even Facebook chat spreading all sorts of misinformation. Only use official sites!
Keep an eye on this page & other links below as we will feed out more info as soon as we can.
The Firework committee now have Facebook &
twitter pages, links below.
