On the 3rd and 4th November, Ally Pally is hosting a fantastic Fireworks Fest.
There’ll be all sorts of fun going on in the park and inside the palace, from ice skating and laser shows right through to a big, Bavarian beer party.
This Fireworks fiesta promises to be more than just an epic display of exploding gunpowder. The fireworks will appear above unbeatable panoramic views of London, and the show will be soundtracked by DJ Yoda, who is crafting a mixtape especially for the event. There’ll also be a dazzling laser show set to double wow the crowds.
Besides watching in awe at all the fiery action, including a parade of fire performers and themed characters telling the tale of the Rise of the Phoenix, guests can also get involved in Ally Pally’s belated Oktoberfest celebrations at the UK’s largest German bier festival. Taking place in the Great Hall on both evenings of the Fireworks Festival, you can expect stein after stein served by Bavarian waitresses in traditional wear. Plus, there’ll be a Queen tribute on the Friday night that Will Rock You and an Elvis tribute on the Saturday to get things All Shook Up. You’ll need to purchase a separate ticket for the Bier Fest, but we’ll bet that it’s worth it.
Guests certainly won’t be left hungry, as there’ll be plenty of street food to keep your tummies filled. Ally Pally’s very own StrEATlife collective will be on hand with over 30 food traders, loads of craft beer and some mulled wine to keep you toasty.
In a further bid to stay warm, get moving and grooving on the undercover dancefloor; there’ll be live music and DJs, including a headline DJ set from Soul II Soul legend Jazzie B on the Friday night.
Back inside the Palace their ice rink will be also be open, so you can show off your skating skills (or bruise a few body parts). There’ll be special disco sessions in the evenings if you’re down for releasing your inner Sister Sledge.
