FIREWORKS NIGHT IS SATURDAY 2 NOVEMBER

The fun starts at 6:00pm when a torchlight procession leaves from Market Place in the town centre. The procession will be led by St Sebastian’s band and various local dignitaries.  If you have never attended the procession we strongly recommend it. The sight of several thousand people with 500 flaming torches walking down Broad Street is truly memorable!

At the same time the funfair opens on Cantley Field for those who choose not to join the procession.  This year the funfair promises to be even bigger than ever with many rides for young children, as well as scary rides for the older ones!

The fireworks start at 7:30pm and the display will be bigger and better than ever and sure to wow the audience just like previous years.  

FOOD & DRINK

A number of food vendors will offer a variety of tasty snacks and drinks.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IN THE INTERESTS OF PUBLIC SAFETY NO ALCOHOL IS ALLOWED ON THE FIELD

PARKING

Parking around Cantley Field is very limited so we strongly suggest you park in one of the town centre car parks and enjoy the Torchlight Procession to the field.  All council-run car parks make a nominal £1.00 charge for overnight parking, but please note that those run by Euro Car Parks may charge more.

DOGS

We are aware that many dogs are frightened by fireworks and may react unpredictably, so could be a danger to small children. We therefore don’t encourage people to bring them.  However, if you are convinced that this wouldn’t apply to your dog then you can bring it.

PROCEEDS

All proceeds go to local charities.  Our target this year is to raise £25,000 for good causes, so please support us.  This year’s main beneficiaries are listed on the Beneficiaries page.
