Bonfire Fireworks Party

Remember, remember the 5th of November - Bonfire and Burgers – Fireworks and Fun; The BIG Sheep in Bideford will be the best place to celebrate this year’s Guy Fawkes evening on Sunday 5th November. 

Dig out your woolly hats, scarves and gloves, wrap and warm and enjoy the heat from our BIG Bonfire! Toast your marshmallows, spin your sparklers and tilt your head up high to see the BIGGEST and BRIGHTEST fireworks around! Visitors to the BIG Sheep’s traditional family bonfire will be able to bring along their very own Guy for the Guy Fawkes competition and the owner of the winning guy will get to light the bonfire. The evening kicks off at 5pm with the a special Toddler Firework Display at 6pm and the Main Fireworks lighting the skies at 7.45pm. Rick Turner, Director of The Big Sheep says “I am looking forward to seeing the children’s faces as they watch the brightly coloured sparkles light up the sky. I remember as a young boy being mesmerized as the dark skies were lit up in front my eyes, so it’s great to recapture my childhood once again!” After the BIG bangs have woken you up and you’re beginning to feel cold outside you can run wild in our HUGE indoor playground! Those hats and scarves will soon be coming off! We’ll also be serving fresh to order tasty burgers, chips and hot dogs as well as the family favourites; toffee apples, popcorn and candy floss!
