Tickets available from “the tent in the town” which you’ll find opposite Primark up to the 5th.

The Round Tablers have run this annual safe and fun fireworks event since 1965 in order to raise money for local and community charities. There’s free parking at the Tractor Plant on Cranes Farm Road and stewards in place to guide you.

Gates open at 5.30pm in beautiful Lake Meadows park, with the lake providing the backdrop for the fireworks. All money raised goes to the Billericay Round Table to be used for charitable purposes, mainly locally.

Tickets on the gate £8 for adults and £6 for children. Advanced ticket sales £6 and £4 respectively, with a transaction fee of £1.50 charged per order, not per ticket.
