Chester-le-Street Riverside Fireworks returns this year with a circus themed event featuring a spectacular fully choreographed fireworks display accompanied by a musical extravaganza of songs from the hit musical The Greatest Showman.

The event will once again feature a whole host of entertainment for all the family with a funfair, food and refreshments, a fully licensed bar and a kids fancy dress competition.

The event takes place on Sunday 4 November at Riverside Park at Chester-le-Street with gates opening at 4.30pm and the show beginning at 6.30pm. Tickets are available from at £5 and children under 6 go free.
