Wonder how many will ask how much it is and when lol

Myself and family will not attend if they are there. They steal and rob people and make such a mess they are disgusting. They were on the football field at Kingstone and what a state when they left. Police should have the power to move them immediately on sight.

I think the ticket prices are very reasonable £15 for a family ticket compared to £25 at cannon (rip of) hall always a good fireworks display at Locke park looking forward to it

5 pound to watch the fire works is a rip off
. If you take you kids to cawthorne park . It will cost you 7 pound but you get to go rpund the farm first . There is all so a fire dance show and lots moor free things for the kids to do ... on the down side last year we had to wait 20 mins to get a hot drink so this year I will be taking my own flask so that problem is solved . The best fire work show a round barnsley
. Plus I would like to add that Wakefield / leeds councils do not carge for there displays

Barnsley council have nothing to do with the Locke Park Bonfire, it has been run by Barnsley Round Table for over 10 years. All those who take part are unpaid volunteers and all the proceeds after costs go back to good causes and charities in Barnsley. The fireworks alone cost over £6000. Cannon hall are charging £25 for a family of 4, Locke Park is £15 for a family of 5, why not pop down to Asda and see how many fireworks you get for £3 a head.

Reply Posted by Tommy on Thursday October 24 2013 at 09:34

Reply Posted by Billy on Thursday October 24 2013 at 12:26

Cannon Hall is not bad...but they are greedy and WAY overpriced for everything! I'm suprised they won't charge you to snezze on their grounds tbh!

I am a volunteer and ex Round Tabler. I will be taking car park money tonight ( It is 3 pounds to park ). It is an honour to be able to give something back to my home town tonight , knowing that ALL the proceeds go to local charities and organisations and have done for 21 years. I will probably be cold and wet by the end of the night, but at least i will be proud. To the moaners, get your hands in your pocket and support your town.

Reply Posted by Joanne on Saturday November 2 2013 at 20:38
Ripoff for price.

Reply Posted by Paul Wordsworth on Sunday November 3 2013 at 00:09
Thank you to all those people who braved the weather and came to the bonfire. A special mention goes to those two mums and their kids in pushchairs who walked all the way from Worsbro Dale. To Joanne , go to Cannon Hall and pay 25 pounds for a family of five, but don't moan when we only charge 15 pounds. The people who supported our town tonight , we salute you. thanks again.

There are some grumpy people commenting on here. The firework displays are always nice so stop being tight. If you dont want to go, don't go!
