The Alexandra Palace fireworks were most definitely back with a bang. The 30,000 strong festival was a great success and we are really pleased that the fireworks have returned after four years.
However we recognise that from year one there are areas of improvement.
The popularity of the free German Bier Festival was incredible and next year there will be an additional hall, more bars, a wider range of beers and a ticketed event that ensures access.
The festival offering during the day will be greatly improved with a wider selection of rides and entertainment next year.
We recognise that the site orientation was not clear enough and next year there will be large site maps at the entrance points and around the park.
We encourage customers to give us their feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can improve on this successful and popular event.

Alexandra Palace has its own British Rail Station, fittingly called Alexandra Palace Station. It is located at the Wood Green entrance to the Park. A regular train service runs from Kings Cross via Finsbury Park.
We strongly recommend taking public transport or indeed walking to the event. The venue car parks will not be accessible due to road closures on the evening of the event, and there is very little off-street parking in the surrounding area.

First opened as “The People’s Palace” in 1873, Alexandra Palace provided the Victorians with a great environment and recreation centre. Just sixteen days after its opening, the Palace, which had already attracted over 120,000 visitors, was destroyed by a fire in the dome.
On 1st May 1875, less than 2 years after the destruction of the original building, a new Palace opened. Covering 7 acres, it was centred on the Great Hall, home to the mighty Willis Organ which was driven by two steam engines and vast bellows.
After certain financial difficulties, an Act of Parliament in 1900 created the Alexandra Palace and Park Trust. The Act required the Trustees to maintain the Palace and Park and make them "available for the free use and recreation of the public forever". In 1935, the BBC leased the eastern part of the building from which the first public television transmissions were made in 1936. Alexandra Palace was the main transmitting centre for the BBC until 1956, when it was used exclusively for news broadcasts.
Just six months after the transfer of trusteeship to Haringey Council, on 10th July 1980, the Palace caught fire for the second time. An area comprising the Great Hall, Banqueting Suite, and former roller rink together with the theatre dressing rooms was completely destroyed. Only Palm Court and the area occupied by the BBC escaped damage.
Development and restoration work began soon after and the Palace was re-opened on 17th March 1988. It continues as a Charitable Trust administered by the London Borough of Haringey.
This year the Park celebrates it's 150th Birthday.
For many years the Fireworks display at Ally Pally was a North London Institution, but in the aftermath of the late noughties recession it was unable to continue in it's usual form, i.e. a free event underwritten by the Palace and the local authority, relying on voluntary donations to help with the considerable costs of staging it.
In line with virtually every other display in the UK, it's now back as a commercial venture where tickets will be sold rather than just allowing free entry, but with so much more added than just a mere fireworks display.
