Fireworks 2016 to Go Ahead

05 October 2016

Fireworks

Fireworks 2016 is now on.

Display will be at 7.30pm on 12 November 2016. Gates to open at 5.30pm.

Visit our fireworks website.

Access by car only from Hambridge Road RG14 7PN.

Following the response to our announcement that Fireworks 2016 was cancelled, we were encouraged to think again to see what could be done. After lengthy negotiations with the racecourse, we have come to an agreement that means the event can go ahead!!

Due to the very late agreement, it’s now all systems go to get the event organised in time.

Fireworks 2016 will be held on Saturday November 12th at the Newbury Racecourse. The lovely guys at FX Fireworks have assured us they can put a display together, with music, which will be up to their usual high standards. The funfair is booked and we are in full planning mode!
