How Do I get to the Event
While we do have parking available, getting to and from the event can be slow due to the roads leading to the park. We recommend coming by Bus (Routes 1 and 1A to Tregoze way/Hay Lane) or walking if you live close enough... for more information on Bus services in Swindon please see Swindon Travel Choices - Helping You Make Travel Choices
Will this event happen?
The organisers can see no reason as to why the event will be cancelled, the only thing that could stop it is extreme weather conditions.

No... Children under 5 are free, if your child is 5 or older, then they will need a ticket.

We do not need any wood or pallets for the bonfire as these are all arranged for this year.

Unfortunately Hot sparklers and crowds are not a good mix so we ask that you leave sparklers at home... There will be Glow/LED products on sale for you to wave and join in! Please also do not bring your own fireworks.
