Fireworks are set to light up the sky over the Royal Docks.

Newham Council’s free event - relocated from its former location on Wanstead Flats - will take place at the Silvertown Quays site on Saturday, November 3.

The fireworks are set to be released from the top of the Millennium Mills building, accompanied by a musical soundtrack that nods to the area’s heritage in the shape of a track by Jean-Michel Jarre.

The electronic musician held his Destination Docklands event, which attracted 200,000 people over two days, in the Royal Docks 30 years ago.

As well as the fireworks display, visitors can see performances from Lords of Lightning and Cirque Bijou, while there will also be music by Heart FM’s DJ Roberto, funfair rides and food and drink stalls.

Entrance will be from Burt Road, with gates opening at 6pm. The fireworks will start at around 7.30pm.
