Bonfire Night 2016

Bonfire Night 2016

Our premier family event returns again this year on Sunday 6th November to the Watersports centrum Sloterpas.  This year promises to be more spectacular than ever!  We have engaged a new firework provider who is promising our most spectacular display yet.  Attached to the page is a movie of some of their previous displays.  You can see some of their recent work below.

All the usual stuff will be available mulled wine, burgers and hot dogs.

The Guy competition will be bigger this year with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.

Tickets will go on sale shortly in the Britsoc shop.  Last year we sold out in about 1 week.  Please don’t be dissappointed and get your tickets as soon as you can.  We have a strict limitation on tickets with our license so in the good dutch term OP=OP.
