After the event has ended at 10pm, we advise waiting a while before making your way back to your car. Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.

All cars will be parked at Peterborough Arena. The car park can hold up to 10,000 cars.

  3. Lana Chapman says:

    Hi I wants know if still sale tickets for two persons and still same price ten pounds? We just wondering will be there full traffic at 5pm?

    • tony says:

      Yes, ticket prices are per person – there are no concessions for group bookings I’m afraid. There are plenty of parking spaces including the overflow grass areas around the Arena. Please come early to avoid the queues.

  4. Natalie says:

    Can you clarify ” pedestrian tickets only” Can you not book in advance if coming by car

    • tony says:

      Yes you can. Unlike in previous years, there is no ticket for gaining entrance by car. The only means of entrance is on foot (having parked up for free) and each person will either need to present a pre-booked ticket, or pay cash on the night. (No debit/credit cards please)

      • Natalie says:

        Ok thanks

      • Natalie says:

        Sorry , me again! The link to buy tickets isn’t working, it keeps saying the page can’t be found ?

        • tony says:

          Hello again :-) It is too close to the event now for TicketFactory to issue and post tickets bought online so the remaining options would be to purchase from one of the outlets listed above, or you can turn up on the night and pay at the gate. We apologise for this inconvenience and will do our best to improve for next year’s event.

    hi trying to purchase tickets from the ticket factory online but the link is not working
    can i ring hotline and pay for them and be sent them in an email please if this option is available. many thanks

    • tony says:

      Sorry about that. The only Advance Tickets that can be presented are printed tickets. These are bought either online (too close to the event to get them posted now) or in person at one of the outlets listed on the Tickets page, and presented on the night. Turning up on the night and paying cash there and then is also an option.

  6. Tanisha says:

    Are there any tickets left. Many thanks

  7. Gemma says:

    Is the event likely to be cancelled due to the weather, and if so, will pre-paid tickets be refunded?

  8. lee says:

  9. Julie says:

    Can u tell me what tim the actual firework are lit please?

  10. charlie says:

    Was just wondering if children under 2 get in free or not?

  11. emma says:

    Is there seating or is it all standing please? I have a guest who wants to attend but gets claustrophobic in crowds?

    • tony says:

      There is a large covered stand with lots of seating, and plenty of space outside in the arena where your guest can find a bit of room to feel more comfortable.

      • tony says:

        Incidentally, do not sit in the back 4 rows of the covered stand as this will restrict viewing of the bigger fireworks exploding high up.

  12. Melissa long says:
