We are delighted to confirm that our annual Firework Fiesta will be going ahead again this year on Saturday November 5th in Stoke Park, Guildford!

Guildford Lions are continuing the successful format of last year but with even better entertainment (including children’s rides etc) and a lot more food and drink options.

This remains a charitable event and ALL profits will be used to support the local community through the Guildford Lions club’s welfare fund and also the Prostate Project who are raising funds to provide a mobile screening unit service.


Gates open 5.00pm. Music 6.00pm until 8.30pm. Fireworks from 8.30pm.


Live music this year will feature leading Mumford & Sons tribute act ‘Chasing Mumford’ plus local band 21st Century Riot performing covers of Kings of Leon, The Artic Monkeys, Blur and many more.

This year the Guildford Lions will be creating a specific Children’s Entertainment area which will include fairground rides, a face painter, an opportunity to buy glow in the dark toys, with more to come.

The fireworks display will again be provided by Pains Fireworks the largest fireworks company in the UK and the brilliant Peter Gordon will be returning as MC.

Ticket Prices

These are difficult times for all of us so despite a significant increase in our costs we have decided to maintain last year’s prices to allow as many people as possible to come along and enjoy a great and safe community event.

This will be an all ticket event again with NO sales on the night. Tickets will be priced at £10 (plus booking fee) for adults, children under 16 FREE (but these must be accompanied by their parents/adults). To buy tickets visit

Food & Drink

A lot more catering options will be provided this year to reduce queues. These include American style food, Indian street food, Thai and Spanish plus vegan & vegetarian options.

We are delighted to confirm some outlets will be providing children’s portions. A wide variety of drinks will be provided by the Star at Godalming including a wine bar this year.


Free parking will be available at the Spectrum (to be confirmed), Guildford College, Allianz Insurance with disabled parking available at the Guildford High School.


We would like to thank all of our brilliant sponsors as without their support this wonderful community event would not be possible.
