Following the success of three sold-out firework displays to celebrate Bonfire Night, Wroxham Barns is bringing back the event for New Year’s Eve and it will be set to Disney tunes.

Wroxham Barns hosted its first firework display this year and it featured low bangs, so as not to disturb animals, and it was adapted for social distancing.

Once guests arrived they then went to their designated pitch, with space for 110 groups of up to five, and there were staggered entry times to prevent crowding.

While it was originally scheduled for just November 3, after selling out two further dates were added on November 1 and 4 - thankfully a day before the second lockdown began.

The event will now return by popular demand on Thursday, December 31 from 4pm to 8pm and will once again be set to Disney music.
