Swansea Council Fireworks: A Night to Remember

Remember the fun on Swansea Beach? Well, this iconic Swansea Council Fireworks event is changing venues again! The council is taking it back to the good ol’ St Helen’s Ground and yes, it’s also going back to being a ticketed event as well.


Lights, Camera, Action!

Gates swing open at 5pm, and what better way to make an entrance than to a movie-themed serenade from the Penclawdd Brass Band? The pre-show kicks off at 5.30pm, featuring glow entertainers, walkabout acts, and performances that’ll make you feel like you’re on a Hollywood set.


A Star-Studded Cast

The kids will be starstruck! Expect surprise visits from Barbie, Spider-Man, Batman with his Batmobile, Wonder Woman, and even Star Wars faves like Boba Fett and Darth Vader. And shhh… we’ve heard that some dinosaurs from Jurassic Park might also roam around.


Fireworks and Film Scores

At 7pm, the main event lights up the Swansea sky. Imagine fireworks choreographed to your favourite movie tunes! It’s going to be, in a word, epic.


Munch and Crunch

You won’t go hungry; there’ll be plenty of food and drink vendors on-site. So yes, you can totally have that cinematic experience with popcorn and soda.


Grab Your Tickets

You can swipe them in advance for a neat discount. Adults are £4, kids and concessions are £3, and families can get in for just £10! If you wait till the day of, and prices go up a tad to Adults £5, kids and concessions £4 and family tickets will be £15. Buying your tickets is a breeze—just head to the Swansea Council website.


Road Closure Info Made Easy

There are going to be road closures so that everyone can enjoy the ‘Night at the Movies’ without a hitch. Closures will be kept to a bare minimum with some roads will be temporarily closed between 4pm and 9pm. Traffic’s expected to be bustling, so do factor in some extra travel time.


The Basic Closures

Gorse Lane: Redirect your ride via Mumbles Road, Guildhall Road South, Francis Street, and King Edward Road. Yep, this route works both ways!

Bryn Road: If you’re between Osborne Terrace and King Edward Road, opt for Osborne Terrace, Brynmill Avenue, St Albans Road, Finsbury Terrace, Marlborough Road, and Rhyddings Park Road as your alternative path.

King Edward Road: Closures are between Rhyddings Park Road and Gorse Lane.

Finsbury Terrace: The stretch between Bryn Road and Brynmill Crescent will be closed.

And heads up! Entry to Brynmill Crescent, Pantycelyn Road, Taliesyn Road, and Ceiriog Road is for emergency services and local residents only.


Quick 30-min Closure 

From 7:15pm to 7:45pm, Mumbles Road will be shut between Brynmill Lane and Guildhall Road South (going both East and West) to help everyone leave smoothly.
