Penicuik & District Firework Displays 2015

It’s that time of year again when the local public are treated to creative and elaborate firework displays. Here is where and when you can find them.

Sunday 1 November – Howgate

The first firework display comes courtesy of Howgate Community Council. The annual display will take place on the 1 November this year with the bonfire being lit at 5pm. Tickets cost £6 for adults, £4 for children and under threes go free. Included in the ticket is either a hot pie, hot dog or bowl of soup (Yum). Tickets are available to purchase at the gate. Located in field behind the church.

Friday 6 November – Loanhead

Loanhead’s annual community firework display will be held in Memorial Park, as usual. Gates open at 6pm and a pipe band will keep you entertained until the display begins at 6:45pm. Glow products (sticks, necklaces etc.) will be available from a stall in the park, whilst refreshments will be available to purchase from the church hall. Entry is free. It should be noted that, for safety, entrance will only be permitted to the park from Park Crescent after 6:45pm.

Saturday 7 November – Glencorse

This is the second year of fireworks at the new Glencorse Centre. They are promising to put on a good family friendly knees-up with a bonfire and fireworks display. Best of all? Entry is free! However refreshments will be charged for. No doubt they’ll be homemade and very reasonably priced (rumours of soup, bangers and burgers on sale). The bonfire will be lit at 6:45pm and the fireworks display will commence at 7pm.

Saturday 7 November – Peebles (okay it isn’t Penicuik but it’s not that far away)

Peebles’ annual firework display definitely promises to excite and is said to be there biggest ever! Taking place in the town’s Victoria Park, the bonfire will be lit at 7pm with the fireworks starting at 7:30pm. Entry is by donation with funds going towards local charities. A free sparkler will be given to anyone donating.
