Hopetoun Bonfire & Fireworks Night
Saturday 1st November 2014
Gates open from 4pm - Last Entry 6pm - Fireworks Display approx 6.30pm
Building on Hopetoun's reputation for putting on one of the best fireworks displays around, 2014's celebrations are set to be as spectacular as ever after another sell out year in 2013!
The event will take place against the backdrop of Hopetoun House, Scotland’s Finest Stately Home and will offer an array of pre-show entertainment including live performances, fairground rides for children and a wonderful selection of food stalls.
The evening will climax with a fabulous finale of fireworks by the award winning company 21cc Fireworks.
Due the nature of the event, the high volume of visitors and lack of natural daylight we encourage people to arrive by car where possible. We will have traffic management in place to ease congestion and allow a safe flow of traffic in and around Hopetoun estate. We recommend you allow a minimum of 15 minutes additional journey time to allow for traffic management and parking.
Visitors can arrive by foot along the Shore Road and through the main gate but please note that this road is not lit and very dark. It is closed to traffic during the event with the exception of emergency vehicles so please use a torch if you plan to walk in this way.
