  • The Walker Ground Trust is a multi-sports ground and a registered charity, whose purpose is to provide sporting facilities to the people of Southgate, in North London.  Located in Waterfall Road in Southgate, it houses a substantial main pavilion on a scenic 14 acre site.

    Every November, the Trust hosts a large Fireworks Display, which usually attracts between 6000-9000 people. As well as the amazing fireworks, set to go off at 7.30pm, we will have a host of stalls, rides, food and drink to keep you entertained before and after the show.  

    The event is a great family night out and a wonderful way to socialise with your neighbours and other community organisations.
  • Disability Access - Our aim is to make sure that the Walker Firework Display is fully accessible to anyone who wants to attend. If you have additional requirements, such as the need for wheelchair access, please contact the General Manager, Dan Whiting on 020 88868381 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Please be aware that there are limited spaces with hard ground pathways and the use of a wheelchair may be difficult in poor weather conditions but arrangements can be made to accommodate.
  • Event Timings - Gates open at 5pm Firework Display starts at 7.30pm.
