This year the Wellington fireworks display is expected to be the safest biggest and best spectacle of its kind to date. The event is very much a family affair. Gates will open at 17.30 on Saturday 2nd November with the fireworks starting promptly at 19.30.
Wellington Cricket Club are endeavouring to make this year's event even more spectacular and have increased our budget significantly to improve the firework display and ensure the event remains one of the most exciting displays in the county.
In addition to the fantastic fireworks display there will be plenty of entertainment for all the family, including a small children’s fun fair with plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy as well as a hog roast, burger van, crepes and two public bars.
This year we are also very proud to be joined by Paul Shuttleworth from BBC Radio Shropshire who will be entertaining the crowd with a selection of local acts including Telford Talent finalists.
Admission to the event will be £5 for adults, £2 for Under-14s and no charge for Under-5s.
The event is always well supported and is considered to be one of the best displays in the region. This year Wellington Cricket Club will once again be supporting the local community with donations from the event’s proceeds being made to local charities.
Due to a change in circumstances, there will be a reduced amount of parking available on the fields next to the cricket club for this year's event. Specifically, there will be no access to parking from the Cludley Road (Old A5) entrance and reduced access to parking from the Haygate Road entrance to the site.
The cricket club are asking those that want to attend this most successful event on the fireworks calendar to park locally; however we urge that respect is given to our neighbours when parking near to the event and not to park across the drives of houses. In light of these changes, we would advise people to allow more time to get to the event than in previous years.
Wellington Cricket Club still anticipate a well-supported fantastic evening of fireworks.
