Carlisle Fireshow

Details

This year’s Bitts Park Fireshow is set to be another sparkling Carlisle event not to be missed!

Following a bonfire, more than 2,000 spectacular sparkling fireworks will light up the night sky.

This will be the 32nd Fireshow event staged by Carlisle City Council. Further information on this year’s theme is coming soon.

Pre-entertainment will start at 6.30pm and the Bitts Park bonfire lit at 7pm. A fairground will be open between 5pm and 9pm on Castle car park (formerly known as Devonshire Walk car park). Please note that times are subject to change.

Carlisle Fireshow is a family event and no alcohol will be permitted on site or within the fairground in Castle car park.

More than 35,000 people are expected to attend the City Council event.
