Thousands of revellers are expected to pack into Lynn next week for the annual Fawkes in the Walks fireworks celebration.

Around 12,000 people attended the 2014 event and organisers believe even more could turn up for the spectacle next Friday, November 6.

Rides and stalls around the park will be open from 6pm, before borough mayor Colin Manning lights the bonfire at 6.30pm.

A spectacular fireworks display will then light up the town’s skies from 8pm.

David Pope, West Norfolk Council cabinet member for leisure and public space, said: “Year after year, The Walks makes a fantastic venue for this event, giving everyone the opportunity to enjoy bonfire night in a controlled and safe environment.

“I would encourage as many people as possible to come along and join the fun.”

The event is free to attend, though children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Charges may be made for some of the activities around the site.

A voluntary collection will also be taken during the evening to help cover the costs of the event.

Officials say the public should not bring firewood for the bonfire as it will not be accepted.

Cancellation information, if required, will be announced via KLFM.
