Bonfire Night Party | Future Yard | Future Yard


On Saturday 5th November 2022 we celebrate this year’s Bonfire Night in some real sonic style. Future Yard favourites and Scouse-icana legends The Shipbuilders perform on our outdoor stage, along with the unashamedly fun-loving pop of Nikki and the Waves. A full firework display launched from our garden will light up the Birkenhead sky, with the wonderful Queensway Collective providing the soundtrack for the lightshow, as well as hosting the official after party in the bar once the outside fun is over. Our garden bar will also be on hand throughout the evening with a selection of seasonal warmers to keep the Autumn chills at bay.

5pm doors. Fireworks beginning at 7:30, followed by the after-party going long into the night.

Tickets just £5 for this, with kids (under 16s) going free.

Tickets on sale now.
