Flash, bang, wow! It’s the biggest fireworks display in the area this weekend…
Get ready for a dazzling Firework Fiesta at Peterborough Arena on Saturday November 7. You can look forward to a firework display like no other with a massive funfair, food stalls, a licensed bar and live music.
Gates open at 5pm, with the lighting of the giant bonfire at 6.30pm before the spectacular firework display at 7.30pm.
BGL Group is once again sponsoring the event, which is now established as the region’s premier firework display and a leading local charity fundraiser. Visitors can look forward to a truly spectacular display of fireworks by Titanium, the company behind national celebration fireworks such as the Commonwealth Games and New Year displays in London and Edinburgh, live music hosted by Heart FM.
BGL’s Chief Executive, Matthew Donaldson, told us “We are proud and delighted to sponsor the event for the fourth consecutive year; it’s a superb event, great family entertainment and a real highlight in Peterborough’s calendar. It’s a privilege to support an event that raises funds and helps to make a difference to so manylocal charities and good causes.”
Last year the event, which is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Peterborough and Peterborough Minster and Round Table, attracted over 8,000 visitors and raised £22,600 which was distributed to a multitude of charities and good causes in Peterborough.
