Fireworks Christmas Launch

Start Christmas with a bang


On Friday 16th November, we’ll be lighting up the Braintree skies in our inaugural firework display.

Join us to mark the launch of Christmas at Freeport Braintree with our spectacular firework display. We’ll also welcome Father Christmas himself on stage to press the plunger illuminating the centre’s Christmas lights and kick-starting the display.

What’s even better is that it’s completely FREE for you and the whole family with accessible parking; you can really make an evening of it. 

The display will mark the start of Christmas a Freeport Braintree, with so much to look forward to - you don't want to miss out. 

What time does the firework display start?

The event starts from 6 pm, with the fireworks set to go off around 6:50 pm - this is of course weather dependent. We do advise getting to the centre as early as possible to ensure you get the best view, as we’re expecting the event to be very popular! 

We would also strongly advise pre-booking a table at your chosen restaurant if you plan on joining us for dinner. 

Exclusive Offers

It's not just the fireworks that will make you say "Ooh" & "Aah"! Our brands will be offering you EXCLUSIVE discounts and EXTRA treats whilst you shop with us. They'll be available for one night only so be sure not to miss out and head to our shops before or even after the firework extravaganza.

Do I need a ticket?

This is a free event, therefore, no tickets are required. 

Will I still be able to shop?

This is our first fireworks event and we’re expecting it to be very popular; therefore the centre will be particularly busy in the lead up to and during the display. But don't worry - shops will be open until 8 pm on the night, with exclusive offers available in selected stores, giving you the chance to shop and make a head start on your Christmas shopping list.
