The Big Night Out

4th November 2016


The Long Melford Big Night Out. Usually on the first Friday in November, Project Seven organise one of the largest bonfire and firework shows around with all of the proceeds going directly to local charities

Usually more than 10,000 people attended the event in the grounds of Long Melford Hall, all keen to feel the warmth of the giant bonfire and secure a front row view of the stunning pyrotechnic display, which is carefully choreographed and staged by Pains Fireworks.

With its roots dating back to the 15th century, Pains is the UK's longest established firework display company with a long-standing association with the Big Night Out.

The 30-minute firework spectacle goes off with a series of thunderous bangs as rockets soar into the darkness, delighting spectators young and old. The display also includes carousel fireworks – the current craze in the pyrotechnic industry.

The firework spectacular is all as a backdrop to the gigantic bonfire that roars into the night sky.

As well as the bonfire and fireworks the event is also host to a large fun fair with many rides and stalls There is also lots food outlets (including a BBQ by Project Seven of course!) providing snacks and refreshments.

Its also worth mentioning again that ALL of the proceeds go directly to local charities!!
