Fireworks

August 16 @ 9:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:30 pm on Monday, repeating until 30th August 2021

Weymouth Town Council are delighted to announce a programme of firework displays in Weymouth this summer. The free firework displays on Weymouth Seafront will take place on every Monday in August (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th) with all displays starting at 9.30pm.

Responding to feedback, the Town Council have made the decision to trial two lower noise displays during the summer season firework programme on the 16th and 23rd of August. The Town Council will then monitor feedback on the lower noise displays and make decisions on future displays. Truly silent fireworks are not currently available for large scale displays.

The Town Council would also like to encourage the public to, where possible, leave their cars at home and walk or use public transport when getting to and from the displays.

The fireworks will take place on every Monday in August (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th August) on Weymouth Seafront, starting at 9.30pm. The displays will be provided by Pains and by Sirotechnics – two major national firework display companies with additional operational support from Masterplan Offshore, Dorset Council (Weymouth Harbour Office), and Weymouth Town Council’s Beach Office.

On the display nights, the Town Council will be running a competition to win £500 in cash. The competition, which is free to enter, has been run for many years with the support of Alexandra Gardens. Visitors can enter by visiting Alexandra Gardens between 7pm and 9pm on display nights.

Weymouth Town Council are delighted to recognise several local businesses that have come forward to support Weymouth’s bumper summer season of fireworks. The seafront businesses that are currently supporting the summer fireworks are: Edward Danters Fun Fair; The Boat Café; The Helter Skelter Fun Park on the beach; Alexandra Gardens Pleasure Grounds; Bacaro Italian Restaurant; and Harvey’s Bar & Kitchen.
