First year living here, is there a good bonfire night /fireworks display around Forest Hill?

Lewisham council organise their fireworks display at Blackheath. This is a good display if you are prepared to take the bus to get there. kheathFireworks2006.htm

The Crystal Palace Fireworks display has been postponed until 30th November.

The Railway Telegraph has a small display and a bonfire.

The other possibility, if it is a clear night, is to watch all of London's fireworks displays at once from Canonbie, Westwood Park or Ringmore Rise. Most of the displays are a long way off, so they look slightly less spectacular but it can still be a great sight.

Crystal Palace display has NOT BEEN POSTPONED to 30 November

It has been planned as a 70th anniversary commemoration of the fire which destroyed the Crystal Palace on 30 November 1936.

It is worth putting it in your diary now - I think it will be quite spectacular!

If you venture out to Blackheath for the fireworks 9pm at Blackheath Halls Geno Washington & The Jam Band will be playing. Contact venue for details.

Hopefully not as spectacular as the one in 1936....
