Wristbands now available for spectacular finale of Light Up Lancaster 2022

Wristbands are now available for this year’s Lancaster Firework Spectacular and the finale of the city’s popular Light Up Lancaster event.

The firework display will be launched at 8pm from the grounds of Lancaster Castle on Saturday November 5, bringing to an end what promises to be a magical two-day festival of music, art and light.

Free wristbands are now available for anyone wanting to grab some of the best spots to watch the display at the two official viewing areas at Giant Axe and Quay Meadow.

Wristbands to access the sites are free and can be ordered online (up to six per household) from

People wanting wristbands for groups of six or more, should contact Lancaster or Morecambe Visitor Information Centres (01524 582394 / 01524 582808) between the hours of 10am and 4pm (Monday to Saturday).

All wristbands will be posted out ahead of the event.
Those watching the display from the two main sites will also be able to enjoy the specially coordinated soundtrack as well as a range of food and entertainment and plenty of atmosphere. The other official viewing area, which does not require wristbands to access the site is Williamson Park.

For those who prefer to watch them from other vantage points in the city – if you can see Lancaster Castle, you will be able to enjoy the fireworks.

The full programme will be available soon.  In the meantime, you can follow Light Up Lancaster news via Facebook/LightUpLancaster or Twitter@lightuplanc
