*** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT – 3.15PM 01/11/19 ***
GRAND FIREWORKS DISPLAY
FRIDAY 1ST NOVEMBER 2019, 7.30PM
We regret to inform you that tonight’s Grand Firework Display and Lantern Parade on St Matthews Field has been cancelled.
This difficult decision has been taken on the advice of Skyburst (the firework company) due to inappropriate weather conditions forecast for firing safely this evening.
Safety is our number one priority and so although we know many will be disappointed, it is for reasons beyond our control.
The fair rides on St Matthews Field will be open tonight from 5pm-9pm.
As it stands all plans for Carnival Day tomorrow Saturday 2nd November 2019 remain in place. We regularly review the weather forecast as part of our Event Management Plan and are pleased to say that our carnival has not been cancelled due to the weather in living memory.
