ORGANISERS of the area’s biggest firework display say this year’s event will be “bigger and better than ever before”.
Downend Round Table has confirmed that this year’s fireworks and bonfire will take place on Friday November 3 at King George V Playing Fields.
The display will again be provided by Skyburst, a Bristol-based fireworks company which has just won the top prize at the British Firework Championships, a two-day event held in Plymouth in August in front of an audience of 200,000 people.
For a third year running a soundtrack to the display will be provided by Party Peeps with the fireworks choreographed to the music. The event will also feature food and refreshment stalls.
Fireworks chairman Paul Wells said: “We are incredibly excited to host the Downend Round Table Fireworks, which has become a cherished tradition in our community.
“This year’s display promises to be another fantastic spectacle, bringing people together for a night of excitement.
“This year’s event promises to be bigger and better than ever before, featuring extended main fireworks show with a wider range of dazzling effects, vibrant colours, and stunning visual displays. “The talented team of expert pyrotechnicians at SkyBurst are working tirelessly to curate a show that will leave spectators in awe, as the night sky is transformed into a canvas of exploding lights and magical patterns.”
The display will once again benefit the community, with proceeds going towards supporting local charitable causes and community projects championed by Downend Round Table, which is a non-profit voluntary organisation, open to men aged 18 to 45.
Paul said: “By attending, spectators not only can enjoy a magnificent display but also contribute to the betterment of their own community.
“We are grateful for the support of our sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, as their contributions allow us to make a positive impact on our community.”
Downend Round Table organises fundraising events, volunteer work and community initiatives with the aim of making a lasting impact on the lives of individuals and organisations in need, and offering a place for like-minded individuals to come together and socialise.
It organises a range of activities and events, including sports, events and trips.
So far this year group members have been on a surprise weekend to Berlin, played padel tennis, Scalextric, crazy golf and baseball, and gone mountain biking.
Last year’s display and the 2021 event both sold out in advance. Tickets for this year’s fireworks are expected to go on sale in early October.For more information visit www.downendrt.co.uk or the Downend Round Table social media accounts.
