Details of Walsall Council’s park bonfire events for 2019

Holland Park bonfire is always a good one. Image by the wonderful Steve Martin.

Readers have been asking for details of this year’s Walsall Council Bonfire Night events in the borough, and particularly Brownhills, so here is the latest information.

The Brownhills Holland Park event will take place on Saturday, 26th October 2019. Other events take place in Willenhall on the Friday 1st November, Walsall Arboretum on Saturday 2nd November and Bloxwich on Tuesday 5th November 2019.

In a change to normal arrangements these are TICKET ONLY EVENTS AND YOU CANNOT PAY AT THE GATE. You MUST buy tickets in advance: Either online by clicking here or from any Walsall Council Leisure Centre.

Entry for the local events has also increased considerably: £7.50 for adults and £5 for kids – little ones under 3 get in free. A family ticket for four (2 adults/2 kids or 1 adult 3 kids) is £18. The Arboretum even has increased adult entry to an eye-watering £10, with a family ticket £25 (that’s only a saving for 2 adults, 2 kids – who on earth priced this up?)

I’d be very surprised if the entry price changes and ticket-only entry don’t kill these events stone dead. I’m astounded.

For safety reasons – no fireworks or sparklers. No alcohol allowed. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
