Wirral community firework displays: New schedule

27th October 2016

Categories: News

Wirral’s traditional community bonfire and firework displays have been rescheduled to take place on Sunday, November 6, this year.

This year, however, there will only be two displays, in Birkenhead Park and in Lingham Park, Moreton, due to a lack of available first aid cover. Residents are being encouraged to attend the River Of Light event taking place on the River Mersey on Saturday, November 5.

A spokesperson for Wirral Council said: ‘Due to lack of available first-aid cover, we have had to rethink our usual council firework events.

‘The safety and wellbeing of people attending council events is paramount, so we could not go ahead with our events on November 5 without the best cover possible. We urge people to get along to the River Of Light and Sunday’s displays too.’

Full details of Wirral’s events for Bonfire Night are available here:

and also at www.cultureliverpool.co.uk

In summary:

• The Wirral and Liverpool City council-sponsored River Of Light event takes place on the River Mersey on Saturday, November 5. The display is free, and starts at 6.30pm.
• Street entertainment will be provided before the event at Hamilton Square, Birkenhead, from 4pm. There will also be street entertainment, family activities and street food provided in New Brighton, including Victoria Road, from 3pm, prior to River of Light and afterwards. A free, 'hop on, hop off' vintage bus will ferry visitors around the resort between 2.30pm and 8.30pm.
• This year’s council community bonfire and firework displays will take place at 6.30pm on Sunday, November 6, in Lingham Park, Moreton, and in Birkenhead Park. These replace displays which usually take place at Upton Park, Woodchurch Leisure Centre, Central Park, Wallasey, Mersey Park, Mayer Park and Leasowe.
