You’ll be entertained by Lancaster’s popular Batala Band, alongside live performances from solo artist Michelle Lee, plus some incredible fire performers! Food concessions will be available.

Although this area is mostly grassed, there is some hard standing on this viewing area suitable for wheelchair users and we will be able to arrange parking for Blue Badge holders if you could kindly contact us prior to the event.

WILLIAMSON PARK

This is a relaxed and quieter viewing location with stunning views across the city with the fireworks displayed against a backdrop of the Castle and Priory.  The soundtrack will not be relayed over PA here, although there may be a short live performance during the evening. The Pavilion Café will be open all evening.

There is a small amount of accessible parking available in the ‘top’ car park (next to the shop/café and accessed via the Quernmore Road entrance). This viewing location has some paths and some grassed areas but please be aware there are some steep hills to navigate, especially if you park in the ‘bottom’ (Wyresdale Road) carpark.

You don’t need wristbands for this viewing area – just turn up.


Please note: The viewing areas are not under cover and may be muddy underfoot. Waterproofs and wellies are recommended!

Also please note that there is no official viewing from Salt Ayre this year, and the Lancaster Castle area will be closed off.
