Details have been announced for the spectacular annual bonfire and fireworks night at HMS Sultan.

The establishment has confirmed that this year’s display will take place on Thursday, October 29, at the Military Road base in Gosport.

Regularly attracting around 10,000 visitors from across the south, the HMS Sultan event will take place during the October half-term, making it the perfect display for all the family.

Matthew Hibberd, a spokesman for HMS Sultan, said: ‘The highly professional 
fireworks display is a carefully orchestrated procession of light, which sparkles in the night’s sky to its own musical soundtrack.

‘Commonly recognised as one of the best displays within the region, the event promises a sensual feast which is guaranteed to please. As well as the main event there will be live music, entertainers including fire-breathers, and a fun fair with rides at very reasonable rates.

‘The evening has lots on offer to keep 
you entertained before the big fireworks finale.’

With free parking for all, the HMS Sultan bonfire and fireworks night promises to offer excellent entertainment and value, with additional savings to those who have purchased advance tickets.

There will be live stage entertainment from 6.30pm, with the main display starting at 8pm.

The gates will close at 10.30pm.

Those details will be released in the next few weeks.

Prices on the night will be £15 for a family of two adults and two children, £5 for adults and £4 for children.
