Wembley Park’s FREE fireworks spectacular Light Up The Night is back this Sunday 10th November 2019.

The family-friendly festival celebrates Brent’s diversity in an explosion of music, colours, fire and light, combining the best of Bonfire Night and Diwali. It’s a free event for everyone to enjoy, creating a unique experience for the communities of Brent and London-wide.

Wembley Park’s Light Up The Night festival has a jam-packed lineup including a carnival parade, live performances, funfair rides and the ultimate fireworks display across Wembley Park.

Kicking off at 5PM, the free festival starts with funfair rides, street food and roaming performers in Market Square, leading to the fantastic fire and light carnival parade created by Emergency Exit Arts around 6PM, culminating in a fireworks spectacular at 7PM.

Join us as Wembley Park’s streets and boulevards are illuminated by the mesmerising light parade featuring live bands, hundreds of lanterns made by the local community, dancers and magical light-up puppets, including a truly jaw-dropping Firebird.

The parade will also include performers from celebrated Wembley costume design visionaries Mahogany Carnival Arts, best known for their large-scale, kinetic costumes admired by millions at Notting Hill Carnival.

Following the parade the highly-anticipated fireworks specular starts at 7PM over Wembley Park, choreographed to a bespoke selected playlist for the occasion.

Throughout the night a street food market and funfair rides will fill Market Square.

After the fireworks are over, London Designer Outlet and Boxpark Wembley will still be open for you to carry on the fun!

We look forward to seeing you there.

Interest in this event has been phenomenal but that does mean it’ll be really busy. We recommend getting down as early as possible to secure your place for the parade and for the fireworks. The best viewing point for the fireworks and carnival procession is in Yellow Car Park, which will be signposted on the day.

We cannot guarantee you will get a spot in Yellow Car Park. Once Yellow Car Park is at capacity, you will have to view the fireworks and carnival procession elsewhere in Wembley Park. This means you may not get the best view. To avoid this, please head to the Yellow Car Park before the parade begins at 6pm. Once at capacity, Yellow Car Park will be closed and you will be directed elsewhere.

Booking a ticket does not guarantee you a space in Yellow Car Park either. This is first come, first serve. Booking a ticket allows us to keep you up to date with the event, it does not give you entry to the best viewing spots.

Do I need to book a ticket?

No! This event is completely free and does not require pre-registration or tickets. The tickets are simply so we can keep you up to date with the event, it does not guarantee you entry to the best viewing spots.

Is there an age restriction?

Light Up the Night festival is a family friendly event and there is no age restriction on attendees. Little people will be well catered for with lots of family friendly activities including lots of screens to see the fireworks.

Are there bathrooms?

Yes, there will be public restrooms for the evening with signage marking them out on the night. You may also find public restrooms within the Brent Civic Centre and inside the London Designer Outlet.
