With the clocks going back this weekend, and the onset of blustery days filled with flurries of orange-hued leaves, autumn has truly landed.
For many of us, socialising is back on the calendar this year, so it’s time to tick those pumpkin-shaped boxes on your autumn bucket list and check out some of Wolverhampton’s finest firework displays. After all…for most of us, it’s been a whole two years since we marveled at a sky lit up with neon rockets and golden sparks, so give your autumn some flare and check out these exciting events happening near TheStudios.
Watch the sparks fly next weekend!
We’ve selected some great bonfire events and firework displays happening locally to TheStudios, so you can get your firework fix and make your autumn sparkle.

Himley Bonfire is an annual must-do!
You know that feeling you get when you’re watching a reeeally gripping film, and you think it’s over…but the film teases you, and you haven’t reached the finale just yet? Well, these geniuses pull off an insane firework display that evokes a similar feeling. Himley is locally known for its impressive pyrotechnics, with jaw-dropping firework displays that capture the annual theme. This year the theme is ‘Circus’ – so expect a carnivalesque extravaganza for the big 2021 comeback!
This event is a popular one, so expect it to be busy. It’s got plenty of sing-along tunes, funfair rides, and tasty hot food.

Fancy a bonfire event slightly closer to town? Hosted by the City of Wolverhampton Council, the Racecourse event offers two firework displays! An earlier display will be catered towards children, with a later version to follow. Although there’s no bonfire due to capacity limits, the display is expected to be a thriller!
Expect a family-friendly funfair and plenty of hot food and beverages. What’s so good about this firework event, we hear you ask? Well, the Racecourse is going to be offering some ‘stay warm’ packages for those of you whose scarves and gloves just don’t cut it, meaning you can watch fireworks from the cosy confines of a warm hospitality box.

Add some sparkle to your Sunday and check out the area’s largest fireworks event! Expect some beautiful displays, with a show-stopping finale. It’s slightly further away from Wolverhampton, but this one is worth the journey, and certainly promises to be a memorable one!
Stretched out across the afternoon and into the evening, there’s lots going on around the site for everyone. Sip on some tasty local beverages brought to the event by Hobsons Brewery or wander over to a street food vendor for some delicious hot food to warm you up on a chilly November night!
Prefer to stay in? Check out our facilities!
Bonfire night isn’t for everyone, especially those of us who prefer a bit of peace and quiet. TheStudios have some lovely facilities and spaces you can enjoy over the Guy Fawkes weekend.
You don’t have to stand outside in the cold to enjoy a refreshing drink! Meet up with some fellow non-bonfire goers and catch up over a delicious drink from our bar. Ditch the funfair queues and pick up the pool cues with a game of pool. We’ve got a lovely drinks menu too, so enjoy a weekend tipple after a long week.
Would you rather watch a movie than watch the fireworks displays? Chill out on our comfortable sofas, and watch a film with our impressive on-site cinema.
The Quiet Lounge
For those of you who aren’t fans of the booming noises of a firework display, spend some quality time in the Quiet Lounge. Curl up with a good book, shut off from the outside world, and let go of the week.
