"TBC" FIREWORKS @ Morden Park

Let's go to Morden Park for their November fireworks!

Meeting place is Morden tube station at 7.30pm - street level outside ticket barriers but inside station - the meeting time is[masked]pm only - so if you RSVP yes you need to ensure you'll be there by then - I won't be meeting up with ppl after 7.45pm (eg I'm not going to meet ppl at the Park or anywhere else).  Morden is the last stop on the southern end of the Northern line - we'll walk to Morden Park together.

We went last year, the display is really great and they play great music to the firework display too.

There is a bonfire at 8.15pm and a firework display at 8.30pm.

Tickets need to be purchased on the night at the gate - for £8 (so please ensure you have cash on you).

There will also be a fairground plus food & games stalls on the day.

After the fireworks I thought we could pop back on the tube and head towards Tooting and decamp to The Manor Barhttp://www.themanorbarandgrill.com/

It's the Manor Bar's Halloween night on 2nd Nov - I have reserved an area in the pub for us - The Manor will have 241 on cocktails from 6pm (all night) and a DJ from 9pm. Halloween fancy dress optional!

More info: http://www.merton.gov.uk/news-events/events/fireworks.htm

How to get there:

  • Tube - Morden (where we shall meet)
  • Rail - Morden South
  • Buses - 80,93,293
  • TFL Morden Bus Map
  • If you're driving then I suggest you park near the Manor Bar (address on web link provided on main event page) - where we'll be decamping after the fireworks (free parking on the side streets from 5.30pm) - then take the tube from Colliers Wood (short walk from Manor Bar) to Morden (2 stops on Northern Line)

    Glad we didn't cancel as the weather was completely dry (if a tad windy!!) - the firework display was great and I'm glad we had a reserved area at the pub for afterwards - somewhere warm and comfortable to decamp to! Great turn out, friendly ppl and I had a nice meal too :) Thx to those who braved the cold to come along and thx to the Zombie, I mean Paul, for co-hosting.
    See you soon...don't forget we've got our Xmas party coming up soon! And Judith, I'll definitely be dancing at that!

    There isn't rain forecast for this evening so let's go for it! Look out for Paul at Morden tube-he's nearly 6ft tall so is easy to spot!
    See you soon!

    • Judith

      November 2, 2013

    • Shereena

      So basically, you're TALL Paul!...though we still kept losing you...must have been that zombie make up that made you hard to spot - from the other zombies!!!

    Hi Shereena,

    I know the weather makes this meet up shaky but can you please let me know if its happening, i.e are we going to the Manor Bar instead? What Time that will be if we are? Or its simply cancelled?

    Thanks, Judith.

      If you can get to morden tube by 7.45 sure - look for Paul - you may not see this msg in time though

  • Jonny

    Is it too late to join you for the fireworks only, I'm local to the area and will probably pop down anyhow? Jonny

    So, the weather forecast for tomorrow is different every time I check but at the moment the forecast is rain in the afternoon but not the evening - but who knows what tomorrow will bring us! So, PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL AGAIN ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON - I WILL SEND AN EMAIL OUT AS TO WHETHER WE'RE GOING TO THE FIREWORKS OR MEETING AT THE MANOR BAR INSTEAD.
