Remember, remember: Barking and Dagenham’s annual charity fireworks display returns to Barking Park on Saturday, November 3.

The event, organised by Barking and East London Round Table with council support, will see electric musician Sam Knight take to the stage once more to warm up the crowd before the big show. Several other supporting acts are also set to perform.

Live entertainment begins at 6pm ahead of the ooh- and aah-inducing display two hours later.

A funfair and food outlets will also be on site.

“We can’t believe we have been holding this event for over 40 years and we are delighted to be back to show off some impressive acts and an incredible fireworks display,” said Alfie Ford from Barking and East London Round Table.

Gates open at 5.30pm with tickets £8 per adult, £2 for children under 16. All primary and junior school children in the borough receive a free pass through their schools.
