Bumper crowds are expected at the Somerset Retreat in Ashcott on Saturday November 2 when military charity Afghan Heroes stage a spectacular free firework display.
Heroes over the Retreat will be particularly poignant for charity supporters as every rocket fired will commemorate a serviceman or women lost in Afghanistan.
The rockets have been donated by event sponsors Standard Black Cat Fireworks.
The Heroes Over the Retreat event will kick off at 6pm with a competition for the best dressed Guy. The bonfire will be lit at 7pm in the paddock. The firework display will start at 7.30pm.
Rock fans will also be raising money for the charity at a special party at the Queens Head pub in Eastville, Bristol, on the following Saturday November 9. The party, from 7pm-midnight will feature Rock Bottom and is open to the public.
