Questions we often get asked..
Absolutely, you will be able to purchase tickets at the gate on the night. However, you get a small saving by buying tickets online
The gates open at 4:30pm, with loads going on throughout the park. We aim to fire the display around 6:45pm, however, this is sometimes delayed due to sheer volumes of people wanting to get into the park (arriving late)!
The likelihood of needing wellies or good boots over shorts and T-shirt is exceptionally high. The park can get quite muddy in parts when wet, and of course it’s November. And it’ll be dark. So, thermals, waterproofs, hats, gloves, boots and even a torch might be useful.
There will be loads of food and drink providers, a beer tent and of course Hebborns Funfair. JackFM will be hosting the evening with Trev on the big screens chatting to every Tom, Dick and Monica.
You could - BUT - you won't get the best view or experience, and remember, all profits raised from the event go to charities across the city.
There is no parking at the event, and we encourage all visitors to use sustainable methods of transportation to get to the event. Please see our Park and Ride tickets for further details.
If the dog is your guide dog, yes. Otherwise no. Sorry.
Of course you can, though we would ask you to consider donating your admission cost to the charity (will give you a warm mushy feeling).
We run a shuttle for our less mobile visitors from the entrance gate on Cheney Lane. Larry and Carrie will whisk you safely down to the arena and back up again at the end. Just ask for the shuttle when you arrive at the gate.
Of course they can. Once you’ve purchased your ticket online, email us, and we’ll send you a quick form so you can provide us with your Carers Allowance award letter. You’ll then get a QR code for your carer to use to get into the park with you. If you wish to purchase tickets for the super family tent or VIP area, there may be a charge. Contact us for more information.
Oxford Firework's has become a household event and name within Oxford, here a few thoughts & comments from beneficiaries
The Oxford Round Table have been a constant support to Helen & Douglas House for a number of years. They have supported us with extremely generous donations from the fireworks displays, attended and supported our events and even supplied the highest quality towels for our children to use. We can’t thank them enough for their continued friendship!
Over the years Sobell House have had fantastic support from Oxford Round Table. They are really good friends of the hospice and we very much value the relationship we have with all their members. Money raised from the Fireworks on the evening is then used to support so many wonderful local charities and we are delighted to be one of those beneficiaries. Brilliant!
Committed and creative in its contributions to community cohesion – that sums up our experience
of the Round Table.
Thanks for your time, ideas and financial support to ensure the continued success of our annual festival. Headington Action Festival Committee.
