Horsham Sports Club is set to see autumn in with a bang as the annual firework display returns next month for the ninth year.

The Horsham Fireworks Night Extravaganza will take place on Saturday October 27 with tickets going on sale from Monday September 10.

Club chairman, Chris Wassell, said: “A fantastic night of fun and entertainment for the entire Horsham family community which is not to be missed.

“We look forward to once again welcoming friends and families from the town and surrounding area to this essential autumn social event bringing together young and old, business and charities centred on a warm and welcoming atmosphere.”

This event has proven extremely popular in recent years due to the stunning firework display set to music which is provided by Aurora Fireworks who were finalists in the 2016 National Fireworks championships in Plymouth.

The 2017 event was included in the top ten best firework events by Essential Surrey in the SW London and South East area.

As well as the firework display, children can enjoy the vintage fairground rides including chair-o-planes, carousel, children’s rides, stalls, inflatables and delicious food stalls including gourmet burgers, hog roast, pizza, fish and chips, thai, steak, Asian food, hot dogs, pick and mix, donuts, and more.

Adults are also well catered for with a large beer tent and inside bar area. And for those wanting to finish the evening after the main event with some music, the clubhouse is also featuring local band, ‘Strobe’, for your enjoyment free of charge.

Chris added: “Each year we try to improve on the previous event and ensure outstanding value where we can all enjoy ourselves and assist in fundraising for our chosen charities and Horsham Sports Club culminating in Aurora Fireworks extraordinary display - The Big Bang Theory brought to life!

“Don’t miss out on this evening of entertainment and see you all at the end of October.”

Gates will open at 5pm giving everyone enough time to enjoy the fair, food stalls and atmosphere, with the fireworks commencing at 7.30pm.

Five hundred early bird tickets are available from £5, standard price tickets (advance) are £7, on the gate tickets (if available) are £10. Children under five go free.

All tickets can be purchased from Horsham Sports Club office or bar in Cricketfield Road, Horsham, or M&J News in East Street, Horsham or by using the sports club web-site http:/www.horshamsportsclub.com (a small online booking fee will apply).
