Hartlepool Fireworks at Seaton Carew

The annual Hartlepool Fireworks display is a must-see event for all ages, and takes place at Seaton Carew, a popular seaside resort on the outskirts of the town.

Following the success of Hartlepool Fireworks 2022, Hartlepool Council have confirmed there will be a fireworks display in 2023 taking place on Sunday 5th November 2023.

Hartlepool Fireworks Times

The event kicks off at 2.00pm with a funfair and live entertainment along the promenade. The fireworks display itself starts at 5.00pm and usually lasts for around 20 minutes. It is set to music and features a variety of colorful and explosive effects. The event officially ends at 6:00pm.

Hartlepool Fireworks Prices

The display is FREE to attend and is a great way to celebrate Bonfire Night with the family. Visitors are advised to wrap up warm and bring a blanket or chair to sit on. It is worth bringing a small amount of cash to spend on fairground rides and the food and drink stalls.
