Simon Fell, Alexandra Palace’s Fireworks Festival director, said of the evening’s return: “We cannot wait to welcome everyone to this year’s Fireworks Festival. We’re going big, with a packed programme featuring all the classics, a sensational display, massive bonfire, plus plenty of extras we add on to bring a proper festival vibe.”
