• When is it?

The fireworks display will be taking place at 7.30pm Friday, November 3.

• Where is it?

Fireworks will be set off from Norwich Castle and light up the skies across the city. The best place to stand is outside City Hall on St. Peters Street, where seating will also be available for disabled viewers, but there’ll be great views from many vantage points.

• What entertainment will be on offer?

The firework display has been designed to erupt and flash in time with music for a great audio-visual experience that’s suitable for all the family. Alan Waters, leader of Norwich City Council, says “this year’s Big Boom promises to be bigger than ever,” so the display is sure to be a great night out.

• How much does it cost?

As always, the firework display is completely free!

• Will there be road closures in place?

Road closures will be in place across the city from 5pm-8:30pm, including Castle Street, Gentleman’s Walk, Gaol Hill, St. Giles Street and St. Stephen’s Street. Full details of all road closures are available at norwich.gov.uk/info/20279/events_2017/2016/big_boom_fireworks

• Will there be parking available?

Parking is available across the city, though motorists should be advised of road closures. The Airport and Thickthorn Park & Ride services (route 501) will be running later, with the last buses to the sites leaving Norwich Bus Station at 9pm.
