Tickets have gone on sale for Norwich's popular Sparks in the Park event, which this year promises to be better than ever.

A lantern procession, fire sculptures and live bands are just three of the activities for families to enjoy from 5pm - 10pm on November 1.

Earlham Park once again plays host to the event, which includes a special display for younger children from 6.30pm before the Big Bang Fireworks - the centre piece of the evening - at 8.30pm.

Fiona Roberts, senior events co-ordinator, said: “Sparks is a real family night out and this year there will even more going on than usual for people to get involved in.

“There really is something for all ages - so get wrapped up and come along to a bonfire night to remember.”

Norwich six-piece The Collective will play selections of songs from classic soul and funk to 70s disco and contemporary rock.
