    From last years thread:


    So good to have the fireworks display back at Brockwell Park for 2011 after a year off, and the 5th of November falls on Saturday this year which is a bonus. Personally I am looking forward to this greatly :cool:

    Yes - we'll take her along, she won't sleep through that outside her bedroom window and I'm hoping it will be a nice family evening out. She might hate it though and get scared - I hope not!

    I used to video London NYE on BBC1 so I could watch the fireworks when I crawled home in the early hours of the morning. Maybe someone else was as sad as me.

    Find some films where they show fireworks

    I wonder if the soup entrepreneurs will be there this year. Not sure if anyone else saw them (or are them) but it looked like they had dragged up a large pan/urn of homemade soup and were flogging plastic cups of it on the side of the path. I never had the soup but am sure their paperwork was all on order :)

    If it's anything like most previous years (although admittedly there has been some improvement recently) she will be more than acquainted with fireworks by the time the display comes around.

    Hmm... Brockwell Park or my mum's village fireworks? That's going to be a toughie.

    eta toughie doesn't look right, how about tuffy?

    I remember at the last display we had some sparklers and ended up giving lots away. Not sure if they were banned that time or not.

    People ignored the sparkler ban when i was last there two years ago.

    Whatever you do, don't drive - signs up already restricting parking.

    Greebo 'scuse me, Mrs May, can I have my country back? R.I.P.

    There's always next year. And if it's any consolation (probably not) I'll probably not be able to get there either.

    It won't be there at Brockwell next year. It'll be at Streatham.

    I missed it at Clapham last year 'cos there was no way I wanted to go there. That's two years in a row.

    Wonder if there's any displays in Peckham? :hmm:
