Gates open 5.30pm

Silvertown Quays, Royal Docks, E16 2BU (off North Woolwich Road)

The theme for Newham’s Fireworks Night this year is the Moon Landing to mark the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The display will be full of sequences and special features designed to shock the senses with its intense brilliance across the Royal Docks’ skyline. The show will be choreographed to a musical soundtrack carefully chosen for an exhilarating journey through space which will have a lasting impression on everyone watching in the audience.

Emergency Exit Arts is proud to present our spectacular Moon-themed acts including the Moon Queen and King who will be surfing the crowds on their Moon boat as well as our breath-taking mechanical puppter the Moon Giant. These will come accompanied by some electrifying performances from Lords of Lightning as well as additional entertainment reflecting the Moon Landing theme.

The site will be artfully lit, illuminating the spectacular post-industrial structure that is Millennium Mills, throwing light on the many facades of the building that was once a hub of Silvertown life.

Up to 20,000 people are expected to attend the event making it one of the largest events to be held in the Royal Docks in 2019.
