Every year in early November 1000’s of people from the local community visit The Walker Cricket Ground in Southgate to view one of the best-loved firework displays in North London. A perennial favourite, the 2014 display looks set to be just as popular and every bit as magnificent. Visitors to the display can expect to enjoy a wide range of food and drink stalls plus funfair rides and entertainment for the whole family.
The 2014 Walker Ground Fireworks Event takes place on Saturday 8th November 2014, at Waterfall Road, Southgate, to raise funds for the Walker Cricket Ground Trust to ensure it continues to serve where possible, and promote “the playing of sport” in the local community. Providing facilities, where possible to encourage all ages – young and old – to get fit, keep fit and stay fit whilst enjoying themselves in a safe environment.
The Walker Ground has a rich sporting history of over 160 years thanks to the Walker brothers, who left the Walker Cricket Ground in Trust for the community to enjoy.
For many of our visitors to the Fireworks Event this may be their only visit of the year, not knowing what additional facilities and activities are available throughout the year. The Walker Ground is home to a number of sports clubs which include, Southgate Squash and Racketball Club, Southgate RC, Weld Tennis club, Southgate Cricket Club, Southgate Adelaide CC, 6 football teams and fitness instructors. Also on the premises is 6th Southgate Club and a Montessori nursery. All sports clubs and organisations welcome new members.
The Walker Ground also has facilities for all types of functions including wedding receptions, corporate events, parties and christenings. Its fully licenced bar and catering facilities can host all events, and the bar is also open to the public during evenings and weekends. On a warm sunny day or evening there is nothing more spectacular than watching the sun shine and set over the church. You can often forget you are in the heart of London.
We look forward to seeing our visitors at this year’s fireworks event – lets hope it goes with a BANG!!
