Fireworks Weekend - Sandwell Goes Global

Illuminated Garden and Playground by Night & Fireworks Evening

All tickets for Saturday's fireworks event have SOLD OUT. Please do not attend unless you have already bought your tickets online.

Join us for Sandwell's biggest and best fireworks weekend with something to suit everyone from lighting displays and an illuminated playground to the area's biggest ever firework display.

Sandwell proudly played host to the swimming and diving events at the Commonwealth Games this year. Building on this celebration of our place in the world, the Sandwell Fireworks and Illuminated Garden weekend will have a theme of Sandwell Goes Global.

On Friday 4 November 2022, Sandwell will host an Illuminated Garden and Playground by Night at Dartmouth Park, West Bromwich, with the main stage headline of Cbeebies TV Star YolanDa.

Light installations and displays will bring colour to the park and the playground which will take on a Sandwell Goes Global theme for the weekend. There will also be family theatre shows, crafts, food and drink and the event is suitable for those who prefer not attend traditional fireworks displays. Friendly dogs on leads are welcome.

On Saturday 5 November 2022, the largest choreographed fireworks display ever to be hosted in Sandwell will take place in the park. Continuing the global theme, the display will feature some much-loved hits from Africa to Barcelona. The fireworks event is now sold out.

The park will be transformed into a mini world stage with The Night Souk Food Zone boasting food from around the world, the Carnevale Zone with a host of funfair rides, the Street Bazaar Shopping Zone and Monaco VIP area.
