Bonfire Night celebrations return to Alexandra Palace

26th October 2011

Visitors to luxury London hotels this November looking to take in a fireworks spectacle this Bonfire Night may want to consider attending the Alexandra Palace display.

Opening its gates at 16:30 GMT and setting off the first fireworks at 19:30 GMT, the show is free to all but comes with a recommended donation of £2 for adults and £1.50 for children.

This year's show marks the return of the event, which was unable to find funding for its 2010 show and was cancelled.

"This is a much loved community event and a prestigious showcase for the palace which attracts massive audiences from across the capital each year," commented Pat Egan, chair the board of trustees.

Speaking last year, the local government representative expressed regret that funding had been cut as part of an overall money saving exercise.

"The money saved will instead be spent on urgent repairs to the palace building. We will however be seeking funding partnerships and/or sponsorship for 2011 in the hope that the event can be resumed next year," the organiser explained.

An iconic venue in north London, Alexandra Palace has been a centre of music, sports and events for over 130 years.

The seven-acre palace is surrounded by nearly 200 acres of parkland and grounds that include a pub, restaurant, boating lake, golf course and much more.

Animal-lovers can stop off by the venue's deer enclosure, where a heard of Fallow Deer graze on the local vegetation which is supplemented by feed pellets and vegetables.
