Fireworks Fridays and Candlelight Nights Set To Light Up Bournemouth This Summer

This July and August, both Bournemouth Pier and Lower Gardens will be brought to life courtesy of two stunning events – Friday Fireworks and Candlelight Nights.

At Bar So, we are excited to be at the centre of the action for those seeking to quench their thirst and enjoy some food before the free main event kicks off at 10 pm. Friday Fireworks begins on 29th July, and will feature a jaw-dropping mix of traditional favourites and mesmerising showstoppers. Set to light up the Pier, you can catch a spectacular display every Friday night up until August 26th.

This will be accompanied by live music and entertainment on the Pier on selected dates as well as free live entertainment in the Lower Gardens from 7 pm. From a fire show and circus workshop to stilt walkers and face painting, there is something for everyone.

Plus for those seeking something just a little bit different, head down to Bournemouth’s award winning Lower Gardens to discover one of Bournemouth’s oldest traditions. Starting on Wednesday 3rd August and finishing on the 24th, this weekly event sees visitors light thousands of beautifully designed tealights.

From animals to cartoon characters, the Gardens will be brought to life in a manner like nothing you’ve seen before. Tapers will be available from the crazy golf kiosk and, best of all, they will be completely free! Candlelight Nights observes an event that has taken place each year since 1896 when Princess Eugénie of France visited Bournemouth, her route through the Gardens lit by candlelight.

Both Friday Fireworks and Candlelight Nights promise to be action packed events and will be sure to attract many visitors to our town. This is sure to see Bournemouth increase its reputation as the country’s best holiday destination and place to live, and Bar So are proud to be a part of it.
