About Musselburgh Fireworks

The move away from its traditional home at the town’s Fisherrow Links is aimed at creating more space for people to park and watch the display, which takes place on Bonfire Night, November 5th.

The evening will be hosted by Forth 1 presenter Boogie in the Morning, there will be fairground rides, festoon lighting and the fireworks will be set to music. American themed street food, including hot dogs, candy floss, hot donuts and drinks, will also be available from a range of specialist vendors.

Admission to the event is free but will be limited to a 5,000 capacity, and in a bid to host an evening for the local community, only residents with an EH21 postcode can apply for tickets.

Funding to support the fireworks extravaganza will come from the Musselburgh Common Good Fund, with the racecourse contributing up to £10,000 and providing free use of the track facilities.

Tickets will be available through the Racecourse website.
