Andover Family Fireworks & Mile Fun Runs

Andover Family Fireworks, Saturday, 8th November 2014

This year’s Andover Family Fireworks is again being held at the Charlton Sports Centre, on West Portway Industrial Estate. This will be a fun filled night full of entertainment for all the family with the gates opening at 5.30PM.

A new innovation for 2014 will be a charity athletics event organized by the Andover Athletic Club. A series of one mile fun runs will be held on the athletics track, and everyone is encouraged to come and have a go, no matter what your sporting ability. Many will run for their chosen charity, and the last races will be for athletes affiliated to Andover Athletic Club, that showcases the athletic talents of these athletes.

There will be entertainment for all leading up to the fireworks event that starts around 8pm. The ‘Rookies’ music group will be the headline act again and will be amply supported by The Groove Room, a funk based band from Southampton

The Middle Wallop Military Wives Choir will be performing for the first time at this event.

There will be a demonstration of Zumba dancing with an opportunity for audience participation.

Walls Funfair are again providing a full choice of entertainment including a mini ferris wheel, carousel ride, mirror maze as well as a host of food and drink stalls, including roast chestnuts and toasted marshmallows.

Merlin Fireworks have again been contracted to provide the centrepiece of the evening, bigger and better than ever. The format has been changed to reflect the feedback following last years event.

Ticket prices are being maintained at the same level for the 3rd year running.

For Entry on the night tickets for a family of 4 are £20 (2+2 under 16). Individual tickets are Adult £6 and Children £5.
