Weymouth’s Bonfire Night celebrations return with a bang this November!
Weymouth Town Council will host a free Guy Fawkes event on Saturday 5th November with a fantastic firework display on Weymouth’s famous seafront.
The fun starts from 4pm with a family funfair on the Pavilion forecourt along with stalls on the seafront which will be in place throughout the evening.
A giant beach bonfire will be lit at 7.40pm, followed by the firework display over Weymouth Bay at 8pm. The fireworks for the display will be provided by Sirotechnics and launched from the boat HM Denham.
Cllr Ann Weaving, Mayor of Weymouth, said: “This year’s Guy Fawkes event on November 5th falls on a Saturday so why not put the date in your diary and make a weekend of it in Weymouth?
“As well as the fantastic display at 8pm, the beach bonfire will be lit 20 minutes beforehand, and the fun fair starts from 4pm, so there is plenty to entertain everyone at this popular event which always draws a huge crowd.”
People attending the evening’s activities are asked, where possible, to leave their cars at home and use public transport or consider walking or cycling to the town centre.
