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.

The bonfire will be lit at 6.45pm and the firework display will start at 7.15pm and last 15 minutes.

“We all know Christmas is going to be different this year and we just want to bring some normality for people and some nice family memories for 2020.
“We can only host the one evening, so once tickets are gone they’re gone.”
Tickets also include entry to the Junior Farm and unlimited rides at the Fun Park, which underwent a six-figure investment earlier this year, with late-night shopping too.
Guests can visit all these areas from 4pm until 7pm and there will also be a food court with street food.
Tickets launch to the Wroxham Barns mailing list on Friday, November 13 at 7pm, with general release on social media at 8pm.
Signing up is advised as the last event sold out to the mailing list within 25 minutes and the deadline to do that is 11am on Friday.
Tickets cost £50 per socially distanced square (up to five people) and guests must arrive in one car - sign up here.
Wroxham Barns will refund tickets if it is unable to go ahead due to Covid-19.
