What time are fireworks in Pontypool, Radyr, Whitchurch, Tredegar and Caerlon
Cardiff Round Table's Sparks in the Park (Sat 5 Nov) at Coopers Field features a bonfire, fireworks and entertainment from the team at Heart 105-106. Last year's Disney theme was such a success Pontypool's Round Table Fireworks (Sat 5 Nov) will once again be synchronised to a selection of Disney classics with music and fireworks starting at 7pm. In Newport there's live music, a funfair and an all important licensed bar at the Celtic Manor's fireworks party (Sat 5 Nov).
Further afield there are plenty of sports clubs and venues putting on their own fireworks including Radyr Tennis Club (Sat 5 Nov), which also includes a BBQ; Whitchurch Golf Club's family friendly display (Fri 4 Nov) kicks off at 7.30pm; Pendragon Fireworks and Pyrotechnics supply the bangs and sparkles at Tredegar Golf Club's Funtastic Fireworks (Fri 4 Nov); while Caerleon Football Club (Sat 5 Nov) and Rugby Club (Fri 4 Nov) both get in on the action. Footie fans might be swayed by the offer of DJs and live music, while rugby fantatics will jump at the chance to combine fireworks with some rugby as a Dragons game will be screened in the bar after the display finishes.
However we're betting that Whitchurch Fire Station's Annual Fireworks Party (Sat 5 Nov) will be the safest bonfire party in Wales seeing that it's organised by the local fire brigade.
