About Langham Fireworks


Langham Fireworks is a community event organised by Langham Parish Council, with all profits used to improve local community facilities at the Recreation Ground. The event has a long and successful history dating back to the 1970s, drawing in many spectators from Colchester and Ipswich as well as the local villages.

After a short break during the covid pandemic, the event was relaunched in 2022 with a family-friendly evening featuring live music, outdoor bar, varied food franchises and children's fairground rides, culminating in a spectacular fireworks display that drew many comments of "best ever" from seasoned observers!

Event Location

Our event is held on the Langham Recreation Ground on School Road (postcode CO4 5PA), easily reached from the A12 just north of Colchester. Gates will open at 5.30pm for our 2023 event.

Ticketing & Parking

Tickets are available either as e-Tickets (purchased online through this website), or as physical tickets available for sale at the Langham Community Shop. Discounted "Early-bird" pricing is available until 20th October. Regular pricing operates from 21st October to 4th November. A limited number of tickets will be available at the gates on event night at a higher "On the Gate" price - but please buy in advance if you possibly can, to ensure quick and smooth entry at the gates.

Free parking is available on a designated part of the Recreation Ground field. Please follow the instructions of Marshalls. Parking on the Community Centre car park is reserved for Blue Badge holders only.

Volunteer Support

Organising and managing an event of this size is dependent on a large team of support volunteers, both in advance but most particularly on the day itself. We are grateful to the many local individuals, organisations and commercial companies who regularly provide practical support to this event. More helpers are always welcome though, to help spread the load and ensure that the event runs smoothly on the day. Various roles are available, helping with marquee set-up, parking, ticket sales, event entry, event stalls, post-event tidy-up etc. Please do get in touch if you would like to assist in the smooth running of the event. Either call Paul Armstrong on 07766 747497, or fill in your details using the Volunteer Form below and we will then get back to you.
