The Big Bang Bonfire

Tuesday 6 November, 5–8.30pm, free

Oldham Edge will once again play host to The Big Bang Bonfire, one of the biggest, loudest and most colourful events of the year. The site will open from 5pm with funfair rides and mouth-watering food stalls for you to enjoy. 

The evening of fire-themed entertainment begins with the ‘Battle of the Oldham Edge Beasts’ as the fire breathing Dragon and Bat duel to become the King of the Night and The Big Bang Bonfire is set alight.

This will be followed by the amazing Juggling Inferno who will be headlining the show with their magnificent fire dance performance that will leave you spellbound.

Double British firework champions Fantastic Fireworks will be taking centre stage later with another explosive showcase of pyrotechnic brilliance for a musical firework finale.

Don’t forget, you can park for free in all council-owned town centre car parks and on-street pay and display parking bays from 3pm on the day.
