About Abingdon Bonfire & Fireworks 2020 - Christmas Edition

Xplosive Events are proud pioneers of 'Covid Secure' events in the Thames Valley. Abingdon Bonfire & Fireworks will take place later than originally planned on two consecutive nights at Abingdon Airfield. By working closely with the Local Authority, we can finally host Oxfordshire's biggest community bonfire and fireworks display in a Covid Secure environment.

By limiting the number of tickets available for each night and implementing Covid mitigation measures within the huge open plan event area you can enjoy the fireworks at Christmas with your family safely.

Come and see our enormous bonfire, hot air balloon night glow (weather dependant), low noise children's fireworks display followed by an unforgettable and breathtaking 1/4 mile wide fireworks spectacular choreographed to Christmas music by local firework legends and double British Firework Champions Illusion Fireworks Ltd.

This will be the largest display of its type in Oxfordshire this year!

We are joined this year by the fantastic Blue Collar Street Food and their mouth-watering array of food vendors from around the word alongside our Loose Cannon bar, mulled wine, luxury hot chocolate, tasty soup, tea & coffee, doughnuts and of course burgers & chips.
