The Heron Riverside Halloween Fireworks Display

Saturday 27th October 2018 from 4.30pm

Every year we will be hosting the annual Malpas Fireworks night. This is an event not to be missed. This year’s event was a massive success with many hundreds of people making their way in to Malpas and enjoying hog roast, pasties and hot mulled cider. The fireworks are launched from a large barge anchored in the river opposite the village, giving spectacular views and a sound track not found anywhere else.

We will be hosting the fireworks again in 2018 on the 27th of October with an approximate scheduled launch time of 7ish. It is set to be bigger and better than before, so be sure to put the date in your diary and come up to Malpas for the best fireworks in town. This is slightly earlier this year due to the tide times so we will be celebrating this year with a Halloween theme. 

This year we will have a large marquee in the car park with a full outside bar to ensure you are all served quickly and efficiently.

Please note: There is a full road closure in place from 5pm to 8.30pm. No cars (including residents of Malpas) will be allowed access into the village during these times with the exception of emergency vehicles. This has been enforced by Cornwall Council and is in place to ensure the safety of all our guests coming into the village.

Hog roast served from 5pm.

Come along in fancy dress and join in the fun.

Due to health and safety, we regret that the use are sparklers are not allowed at this event.
