Remember, remember the 5th of November.. and the 27th, 28th October, and the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th and 11th of November too.
We’re getting giddy with excitement at the thought of fireworks – there’s something fascinating and magical about them that gets me all nostalgic and warm inside (perhaps it’s the copious amounts of mulled cider, or hot chocolate that is consumed at the same time!) Whatever it is, the kids love them and so if you want to know where to go for fantastic displays near Exeter, Devon, then scroll down for lots of ‘ohhhhhh’ and ‘ahhhhhh’ moments.
The below information has been compiled by Little Devon, but is each attraction’s own words.

Since moving to Westpoint, Round Table has seen the event grow from strength to strength. Westpoint has proven to be a perfect venue, being situated just a few minutes off the M5 and only 10 or so minutes from central Exeter. The vast Westpoint site has meant the number of fairground rides has grown considerably in size with some fabulous fun and breathtaking rides!
Mark Johnstone , event organiser from Round Table said “This year the chosen theme is Mystical and Magical, expect to see the sky lit up with some well known tunes that will transport you into another world. We couldn’t be happier with the success of the event over the last few years and we are looking forward to another super year this year”
