Indie-rock band The Noisettes will headline Suffolk’s most spectacular fireworks show at Heveningham Hall alongside Gary Mullen & The Works’ One Night of Queen, a leading tribute act to the legendary rock band, on Saturday 3rd November 2018.
The event, which is held in the 5,000 acre parkland of the Grade I listed Georgian mansion near Halesworth, will also see roots rock group The Vagaband and Southampton-based four-piece Black Cat Poppers take to the stage for a stellar line-up of live music & entertainment that goes on late into the evening.
The live music begins as soon as the gates open at 4.30 pm and the huge bonfire is lit at 4.45 pm whilst the spectacular fireworks display, once again by Full Effects Fireworks, takes place between 7 pm and 8 pm.
The LED Drummers, a magical live music, movement and lighting spectacular, will also perform during the evening.
“With a huge bonfire, spectacular fireworks plus lots of exciting live music & entertainment going on until late, this year’s show is set to make for a great Saturday night out,” said a spokesman for the organisers.
The event sees ALL proceeds raised going to local charities and the estate does not take any of its expenses, including the cost of the fireworks.

Since May 2002, Gary Mullen and the Works have performed throughout the UK, USA, Europe, South Africa and New Zealand to sell-out audiences. The outfit have also twice rocked the prestigious BBC Proms in the Park, in front of a very enthusiastic crowd of 40,000. One Night of Queen is a spectacular live concert, recreating the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of arguably the greatest rock band of all time. This show will ROCK you!

In 2013 they were listed in The Alternate Root’s poll of top 20 New Roots Bands of Europe. 2014 saw the release of their highly-praised second album ‘Medicine For The Soul’. In 2015, U.S. band Ween asked the band to remix material from their Chocolate & Cheese album, announcing the result as ‘genius’. Since then the band have signed a publishing deal with Wipe Out Music and have shared festival stages with the likes of The Handsome Family, Fairport Convention and Dodgy.
