What time are fireworks in Alloa, Linlithgow and Cumbernauld
The annual fireworks display from The Stirling and Bridge of Allan Round Table is back this year, expecting over 8000 people for the show on Fri 4 Nov. There's music from Hue & Cry before the lighting of the bonfire at 7pm. In Blair Drummond, things kick off a little earlier on Sun 30 Oct with the Briarlands Farm Bonfire Night. The bonfire is lit at 5pm, but it's a strictly 'firework free' family evening, so no big bangs at this one. The Funyard is open from 4pm and the Farmers' Den Tearoom is staying open late to serve hot food and drink. The Round Table have organised more fireworks over in Alloa (Sat 5 Nov) with a line up including X Factor's Reggie'n'Bollie, Kirsty Docherty, Alix Muir and Kieran Fisher.
Falkirk welcomes back the fireworks display in Callendar Park (Sat 5 Nov), where entertainment starts at 6.30pm with performances from the Patryns, Falkirk Youth Dance Company and 5 Strings. In Nearby Linlithgow, there's a fireworks night at the Rugby Club (Sat 5 Nov) where all proceeds are reinvested in youth and community sports.
If you don't mind venturing a little further, head over to Cumbernauld a day early for its fireworks display starting at 7.30pm, or get to Airdrie for 7pm to see its fireworks show that's also on Fri 4 Nov. Hopetoun House is celebrating Guy Fawkes night a whole week in advance with one of West Lothian's most spectacular fireworks displays to music (Sat 29 Oct). The grand, stately home provides a stunning backdrop for the display, which is designed by the award winning team at 21CC Fireworks. Gates open at 4pm for pre-show entertainment, but fireworks kick off at 6.30pm.
