Fireworks spectacular set for Sunday!

News / Mon 27th Oct 2014 at 05:22pm

FINAL preparations are being made for Harlow Council’s annual free admission fireworks night event which takes place at the Showground in Harlow Town Park this Sunday (2 November 2014).

The event, which is one of the biggest free admission displays in the East of England, has been running for over 40 years.

The night’s celebrations will begin from 5.30pm with a funfair and the Heart 101.7 music roadshow hosted breakfast show presenters Martin and Su. The Chair of Harlow Council, Councillor Ian Beckett, will light the bonfire at 6.45pm and a 20-minute fireworks display will start at 7.15pm.

Fifth Avenue between the Sainsbury’s roundabout and Edinburgh Way roundabout will close at 5.15pm and re-open at 8.30pm due to the large number of spectators expected to arrive at the Showground on foot. Residents who live in the area around the road closure will be given access during the closure. Local diversions will be in place.

There will be no parking at Showground car park, except limited parking for Blue Badge holders arriving before 6.15pm who will then be able to leave when the road re-opens at 8:30pm. All other drivers should use the nearby train station car park or Town Centre car parks.

Harlow Council is asking residents help to make it a successful and safe night by following these simple rules:

· Please do not bring fireworks to the event.

· Please be careful with sparklers

· Wrap up warmly and wear appropriate clothing and appropriate footwear.

· Bring a torch.

· Leave all pets at home.

· Ensure that children are accompanied at all times by an adult If children become lost or separated please report to the Control Tent situated at

· the top of the Showground.

· For your own safety please remain behind the safety barriers at all times.

· More information on fireworks safety

The event is being organised by Harlow Council with support from Great Parndon Community Association.
