Purico New Year’s Eve Fireworks 2017 at Nottingham Castle


Sunday 31 December 2017 from 8pm

Nottingham will welcome in the New Year with a bang, as the Purico New Year’s Eve Fireworks, supported by Nottingham Care Village, return to Nottingham Castle on Sunday 31 December.

There will be two shows, ensuring as many people as possible can enjoy the celebrations.

The children’s fireworks display will start at 9.15pm and is designed for a younger audience within the Castle grounds.

Then, as the bells ring out at midnight, the main fireworks display will light up, accompanied by a music soundtrack, and be visible from across the city.

The party atmosphere will start from 8pm, with a programme of live music and entertainment from the bandstand, including performances by:

Disco Prophets, from 8.10pm until 9.10pm
Nottingham’s Disco Prophets are the only seven-piece band in the East Midlands totally dedicated to playing disco-inspired music; they’ll have you dancing all night long

Off The Record, from 9.50pm until 11.50pm
Classic rock and pop party anthems from the 60s to the present day

A range of food and drink stalls will be available, including vegetarian options and plenty of fizz.

Entry to the event is free, with the doors opening at 8pm. As the Castle grounds have a limited capacity of 2,500, visitors will be admitted via the Gatehouse on a first-come, first-served basis and then on a one-in, one-out basis once at full capacity.

For those not able to access the Castle grounds, Friar Lane and Castle Road will be closed to vehicles from 7.30pm, allowing for additional viewing space from outside.

Do not bring your own fireworks or sparklers to this event. Visitors bringing their own alcohol will not be permitted entry to the Castle grounds, and we reserve the right to inspect bags.
