Oldham's Bonfire

The Big Bang!

Back with a bang

Thursday 2 November 2017  

Oldham Edge will once again play host to the Big Bang Bonfire, one of the biggest, loudest and colourful events of the year.

The site will open from 5pm with funfair rides and mouth-watering food stalls.

The stage show starts at 6pm with the bonfire lighting followed by the Flame Oz fire dance and pyrotechnic spectacular and fantastic firework finale.

Please ensure you wear appropriate footwear, wrap up warm, arrive early and use public transport, if possible, to avoid high demand on town centre car parks.

If you are driving all town centre car parks owned by Oldham Council will again be free of charge from 3pm.
