Bonfire Night fireworks and entertainment, November 5, on Plymouth Hoe
Plymouth Hoe is the place to be this Bonfire Night (Monday 5 November), with fireworks set to a rousing musical soundtrack and spectacular lighting displays to complement the glow of the traditional bonfire.
Smeaton’s Tower, the Royal Citadel walls, the Hoe gardens and the Royal Naval War Memorial will all be illuminated by coloured lights, making them stand out dramatically against the night sky.
Fairground rides and refreshment stands will be open from midday and the main event will get under way at 6pm, with Heart entertaining the crowd from its show stage on the Hoe promenade.
Plymouth street dance crew Beat-Breakers, who are known for their exciting, high-energy performances and have worked with stars such as Labrinth, JLS and Lemar, will be appearing on stage, along with Lady Gaga tribute artist Sam Chapman, otherwise known as Gaga Unleashed.

Local singer Felicity Dukes, who recently performed at Music of the Night and local duo Natalie and Cotty, who performed at last year’s Bonfire Night event and the British Firework Championships in August, will also be taking to the stage.
The bonfire, near Smeaton’s Tower, will be lit at 7.30pm and will be topped with a guy created by pupils at Beechwood Primary School.
At 8pm, specialists from Surrey-based fireworks company Pyrovision will set off rounds of sparkling fireworks from the Citadel ramparts in a spectacular 18-minute display. They are teaming up with local firm Stage Electrics, who will be providing a musical soundtrack featuring well known themes and tunes.
Pyrovision and Stage Electrics have worked together on ‘Music of the Night’ events at the Royal Citadel over the last 21 years.
Deputy Council Leader Peter Smith said: “Our Bonfire Night event is always really popular and a great way for the whole family to enjoy a fun evening out in safety. The Hoe provides an amazing backdrop for the fireworks display and bonfire, especially with all the atmospheric lighting and music. There are also rides, refreshments and fantastic live entertainment, making this the best Bonfire Night celebration in the city.”
Members of the public are reminded that parking around the Hoe is limited. An extended parking area will be available on the Hoe promenade for blue badge holders but spaces will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Access will be via the Elliot Street entrance to the Hoe promenade from 5.30pm.
All city centre car parks will be open but spectators are advised to use public transport where possible. No park and ride services will be running but Citybus and First Devon and Cornwall will be operating more buses and larger buses on all major routes.
