Walsall Council to celebrate Bonfire Night with bucket collection for Acorns Children’s Hospice

Published on

Walsall Council is celebrating its annual Bonfire Night celebrations at the Arboretum on Saturday 4 November and King George V Playing Field on Sunday 5 November 2023.


The event will feature a traditional bonfire, firework display and fair, with volunteers from Acorns Children’s Hospice holding a big bucket charity collection.

The event will take place from 5pm to 7:30pm, with tickets costing £8.50 for adults, £6.50 for children, £24 for families, and £1 for under three tickets. The fireworks display will be accompanied by music, and there will also be a fun fair with stalls selling food, and rides for all ages.

“ We’re delighted to be holding our traditional Bonfire Night celebrations again this year. It’s a wonderful opportunity for families to come together and enjoy an evening of fun and laughter, and we encourage everyone to come out and have a great time.

We’re also pleased to be supporting Acorns Children’s Hospice, a vital charity that provides specialist care services to life-limited and life threatened children and their families. We hope everyone will support their big bucket collection during the Arboretum bonfire event. “

“ We are delighted to be attending Walsall Council’s Bonfire Night event at Walsall Arboretum. At Acorns we understand that family time is precious when a child’s life is limited, and we directly support families within Walsall in any way we can to create lasting memories. The Bonfire Night event promises to be a fantastic, fun packed evening for all the family to enjoy. “

Emma Rolinson, Area Fundraising Officer, Acorns Children’s Hospice
