Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



4 days to go until Burnham’s grand fireworks display on Sunday!

Burnham’s spectacular fireworks display returns to the seafront on Sunday 6th November 2022 when Skyburst, The Firework Company, will fire the display to music from the Esplanade jetty at 6:30pm.

The event is funded by Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council with support from local businesses:

• Taste of the Orient Chinese restaurant serving quality Chinese cuisine from 66-68 High Street
• Barrington & Sons solicitors, providing legal support on all matters of property, probate, family and employment laws from its offices at 60 High Street
• Burnham-on-sea.com, the local independent news website for Burnham-on-Sea and the surrounding area

Special thanks go to:

• Positive Wealth Creation Ltd, providing independent unbiased and unrestricted financial advice from its offices at 55 Victoria Street – for making a donation and taking the carbon emissions supplied from the fireworks event into their 2022 calculation, buying trees to offset the emissions via their usual partner, Carbon Footprint Ltd.

Each year at the event we see unauthorised street traders selling eye-catching toys to the crowd. These street traders do not support either the event or local business and the town council does not endorse the products sold.

To help quickly reunite any lost children, free wristbands are available from the Toy Cupboard on Pier Street and the Information Centre. A mobile number can be written on the wristbands, which can be worn by children attending the event.

The town council asks attendees to consider donating any spare change to the Rotary Club’s charitable bucket collections sited along the Esplanade during the event. All of your donations made to the Rotary Club will go towards supporting good causes for the benefit of both the local community and to support wider life-changing major projects.

As we all look forward to a fun and safe event, the town council would like to remind attendees not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers and to leave pets at home. Please also remember to be considerate of those around you and to be mindful of Covid.

The fireworks event is weather and public health dependent. For the latest updates, people are encouraged to check local media, the town council’s website www.burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk and local radio stations.
