About the Bristol Firework event.
2014 Fireworks Fiesta at Canford Park – Saturday 8th
Organised by The Bristol Round Table and The Rotary Club of Clifton, the Fireworks Fiesta at Canford Park (previously the huge display on the Durdham Downs) will take place on Saturday 8th November 2014 and will be nothing less than utterly spectacular – come rain or shine! This year’s event plans to make up for last year’s unfortunate and unwelcomed event cancellation due to the park being water logged which was completely beyond the committee’s control.
The previous two years, 2011 and 2012, raised over £30,000 for local charities so they hope that 2014 will be equally successful.
The most important mandate for the organising committee this year is to maintain the loyalty and commitment to the event’s charitable cause and the thousands of pounds it raises for many local charities benefitting Bristol’s underprivileged. Bristol Round Table and Rotary Club of Clifton members, very much appreciates everyone’s loyalty which is never taken for granted and so now wants to make a real point this year of maintaining Canford Park as everyone’s number one choice.
Their intention is to make this year’s display nothing less than exceptional and so hopefully it will re-ignite a passion for keeping it as the preferred display in Bristol. Last year’s cancellation was a very difficult decision but sadly had no choice as the grounds were water logged. They have since been informed that the amount of rain in the weeks leading up to the scheduled event in 2013 was the worst it had been for decades and so, hopefully, is very unlikely to be repeated. They also say they cannot of course give any guarantees but believe their amazing display will happen in the hope it will rebuild everyone’s confidence and prove to be the best display in and around Bristol.
Now in its 4th gates at 6pm where the fireworks will be launched 7pm or soon after. The grounds are spacious and the event is ideal for families and people of all ages. Tickets will be sold in advance for £4 at St.
Peter’s Hospice shops and local schools or on the gate for £5. Due to the popularity of the event it is recommended tickets are bought in advance to guarantee a place and will enable faster access through the gates. For details, please visit the website at www.fireworksfiesta.co.uk
This will again, be a fabulous display of fireworks for all the family and just as last year any profit (after necessary third-party costs) will be donated to a number of local charities. The Canford Park display has always been intended to be a strong community event and local display that will appeal to young families living near the park and visitors are encouraged to walk to the display (or use public transport) as there will be no parking available on site. November 2014 year, The Fireworks Fiesta at Canford Park on Saturday 8th.
