Fireworks and Bonfire 2019

Music acts Craig John and the Cabeytu Brothers

Bridge of Allan Fireworks 40th Year

Tuesday 5th November 2019 from 5:45pm

Come and join us in Bridge of Allan for the 40th year of our traditional Bonfire night on 5th November. This year promises to be better than ever with a bumper fireworks display and live music from Craig John as Freddie Mercury and award-winning multi-instrumentalists, the Cabeytu Brothers.

Family friendly, refreshments, fireworks, a huge bonfire and lots of fun. All profits from this get returned to the local community through our local proceeds initiatives.
The Cabeytu Brothers from Argentina are Europe’s top multi-instrumental show! Diego and Cristian Cabeytu are two of the most exciting international entertainers in Europe!
 
True musicians, these extremely talented young guys sing, dance and play more than fifteen different instruments in their shows, packing out venues wherever they perform! From Rock to Country, Irish to Pop, Scottish to Rock & Roll, U2 to the Beatles, there’s something for everyone in The Cabeytu Brothers repetoire!

Craig John is highly regarded as the UK No.1 tribute to Freddie Mercury touring Europe for 25 years!! Craig’s voice is unique, the power, the sound of Freddie himself… having performed to thousands of queen fans all over Europe.
