Burnham-on-Sea Grand Fireworks Display planned for 7th November 2021

Burnham-on-Sea Grand Fireworks Display planned for 7th November 2021

After a year off, it is planned that the Grand Fireworks Display will return to the Burnham-on-Sea Esplanade in November 2021 to support the ‘Sedgemoor Weekend’ carnival event.

The council’s consideration of the public health position, availability of volunteer support and light levels has meant there has been some uncertainty over the date of the fireworks event. Councillors have now agreed they are keen to proceed with a display on Sunday 7th November.

The town council and Skyburst, the Bristol Firework Company, are working closely with bodies concerned with public health to ensure comprehensive risk assessments are in place.

Further details about the event will be published in due course and letters are being sent to affected residents, businesses and services.

If you would like more information or to speak with someone about the fireworks display, please contact your local councillor who will be happy to assist. Councillor contact details can be found on the town council website here.
