Cancelled - Brunel Bonfire Night and Fireworks Display 2019

With much regret Brunel has taken the decision to cancel tomorrow evening’s Fireworks Night event (Tuesday 5 November) because of the weather conditions being forecast. We have been told by the display company that heavy winds expected tomorrow would pose an unacceptable risk of injury to a large crowd. The safety of our guests is of paramount importance to us and we will be fully refunding everyone who has bought a ticket via our Eventbrite booking system or directly if tickets were bought on campus. This has been an incredibly hard decision to take and we apologise to everyone who was looking forward to this year’s event.


We are proud to be hosting one of the largest fireworks displays in Uxbridge. 

After a decade of hosting one of the largest fireworks displays in the Hillingdon area for our local community, we are proud to welcome you to our Uxbridge campus on Tuesday 5 November for what promises to be a night to remember. Titanium Fireworks will be working with us this year, the team do national events including London New Year and Edinburgh Hogmanay so we are looking forward to a stunning display. The display will take place in our Sports Park.
