Organisers of the Hereford Round Table Fireworks Display said this year’s event promises to be the most spectacular in its 30-year history.
Hereford Round Table has received a major boost from main sponsor Sanctuary Group which this year doubled its financial support.
The annual display at the Hereford Racecourse also takes place on Bonfire Night which falls on a Saturday this year, the most popular time for firework shows.
Fireworks will again be provided by Kimbolton Fireworks, the company behind the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve Display and the Edinburgh Hogmany.
Mark Harper, chairman of the Hereford Round Table, said: “We have really gone to town with this year’s firework display.
“It’s great to have Sanctuary as our sponsors as they share our commitment to the local community and their generous support means we can guarantee a spectacular display on November 5th.
“Kimbolton Fireworks are the best in the business and we expect to deliver the ‘wow factor’ times ten. I can promise you, people will not go home disappointed.”
Sanctuary Group Director Peter Martin added: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Hereford Round Table Firework Display.
“It’s one of the main events in Hereford’s calendar and brings so much joy to so many people. All the money raised directly benefits individuals and groups in the local community which is something we are keen to support.”
The event, which also includes a bonfire, food stalls, a funfair and music from Wyvern FM, is one of the key events in the Hereford Round Table’s annual fundraising drive.
So far this year, Hereford Round Table has raised nearly £20,000 which will all go to support local causes.
Previous beneficiaries of grants from Hereford Round Table include Greyhound Rugby Club, Hereford Aircadets, Barrs Court School, Charles Renton Unit, Scouts & Guides, Pegasus Football Club, BODS, Marches Family Network, Christian Lewis Trust, Hope City Church, Hereford Sea Cadets, Haven, Central Dojo, Hereford Rugby Club youth teams and 2Face Dance co.
Gates open at 5.30pm. Entrance is £10 per adult and free for children under 16 when accompanied by an adult.
