West Norfolk's biggest free bonfire night is returning for its 10th year.

Fawkes in The Walks is expected to draw thousands to King's Lynn on Friday, November 2.

West Norfolk Mayor Nick Daubney, will light the bonfire at 6.30pm, with the firework display due at 8pm.

Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk council's deputy leader and cabinet member for culture, said: 'If you've started thinking about where to celebrate Bonfire Night, Friday, November 2 is the date for your diary. Fawkes in The Walks will be as spectacular as ever, and I'd urge everyone to come along and join us.'

This year Fawkes in The Walks will have its own Snapchat filter and from 5pm till 9pm users can add the official filter to share their snaps. The borough council will also be sharing any snaps that are saved and posted to Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #FawkesinTheWalks.

Fawkes in The Walks is organised by the council. Admission is free but a voluntary collection will be made on the evening to help cover the costs. Charges may be made for other activities such as fairground rides.

The entrance to The Walks from Seven Sisters/Extons Road will be closed on the evening from 7.45pm, and those planning to enter the park from that end are advised to use the Tennyson Avenue entrance instead.
