The fireworks display will start at 7.30pm

Food and drink outlets will remain open until 9:00pm

This will be an extremely busy event so please allow extra time to travel to and from the racecourse. Due to limited parking on soft grass standing, we advise people to car share where possible, make use of public transport and taxis, or walk if you can. 


Car Parking is available on site and as it is anticipated to be busy , we suggest that you arrive early to avoid congestion and invite you to stay on site to enjoy the entertainment to help with the flow of exiting traffic. Our Car Parking team will be on hand to assist you on the evening.

Head over to the fun fair for some thrilling rides suitable for all ages, which will operate on a pay-as-you-go basis, taking both cash and card payments. Please note that there are no cash machines on site. We have a variety of roaming entertainment on-site throughout the evening, some of which may use flashing/strobe lighting.


Please check the local forecast before departing and dress accordingly. We are expecting a considerable amount of rain so we advise you to wrap up warm, wear appropriate footwear and bring waterproofs as this is an outdoor event with limited indoor space.


A range of bars and food outlets are available serving tasty bonfire night snacks and drinks. Please be aware that no food, drink or picnics can be brought into the racecourse except in the case of a severe food allergy, in which we ask you to contact us directly to arrange bringing in your own food.


We take security and safety very seriously. There will be a strong security presence and you will be subject to a bag search on arrival.

We ask all visitors not to leave bags unattended and to report anything suspicious to a member of staff.



Please remember, the majority of food outlets and bars are card only but we advise you to also bring cash for the funfair rides. There are no cash machines on site so please bear this in mind. 


With the exception of Assistance Dogs, dogs are not permitted to enter the racecourse. In the interests of animal welfare, no dogs are permitted to be left in cars and we politely request that all dogs are left at home.


At this event, no student, OAP or other concessions will be available.


For health and safety reasons, no sparklers or other lit fireworks can be brought into the racecourse.

Thank you for booking tickets and above all, enjoy your time at Bath Racecourse. For any other questions, please contact us.
