For those who’ve been asking (and some folk have been really keen to find out this year), Walsall Council have released details of 2016’s bonfire and firework events in the borough, including the one at Holland Park, Brownhills which this year takes place on Saturday, 12th November 2016.
I had thought that last year may be the end of such events, but the whole thing has come back bigger and better, with an extra spectacular at Walsall Arboretum on the 5th November.
Entry is still a pocket-pleasing £4 for adults and £1 for kids – plus little ones under 5 get in free.
There will be food and children rides to enjoy, too.
For safety reasons – no fireworks or sparklers. No alcohol allowed. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
I congratulate Walsall Council on this event, which I’m genuinely surprised to see.
