Kent Life Fireworks

2nd – 3rd November

Be stunned by the fire breathers lighting our mesmerising bonfire and witness the countdown to our spectacular firework display. Join us in this momentous celebration to mark the end of a great season and the beginning of our winter festivities.

The evening will be entertaining for all ages with activities including face painting*, children’s fairground rides*, glow sticks galore*, a licensed bar* & food concessions*. During the afternoon (before the bonfire and fireworks), you will still be able to enjoy the free entertainment at Kent Life including indoor and outdoor play areas, tractor rides, the vintage buildings and cuddle corner.

There’s no need to rush off after, why not stop off at Dotty’s tea room for a luxurious hot chocolate (or two).

Kent Life opens at 3pm. The bonfire will be lit at 6.15pm followed by our spectacular themed fireworks at 6:30pm. Please note the gates will be closed and last admission will be at 6pm.


We have several viewing points across the site to watch the fireworks, please look out for the viewing point signs. We do not allow sparklers to this event due to the nature of our site. Please leave all furry friends at home safe and warm.

This is a very popular event. With this in mind, unfortunately we are unable to guarantee onsite car parking for all ticket holders. You are advised to arrive early. There is additional car parking available at Cobtree Manor Park (free). All timings for this event are approximate. We have appointed a Traffic Management company this year to help ease the exiting of the event. As such please be aware that there may be a compulsory diversion in place.

*Additional charge applies.
