Planning Process for the 2021 Fireworks

We are delighted to confirm our Fireworks Fiesta will but with some important differences
We are a registered charity with a sole aim to support our local community doing this by staging fund raising events, talks and collections etc. We have no paid employees and all profits that we make are used to support people in need.
Our annual Firework Fiesta is our largest and most important event of the year and when
the planning process started in way back in January this year our Firework Committee had three significant challenges to overcome:
• Covid and the uncertainty of what regulations would be in place in November
• Second guessing how receptive the public would be to attending and gathering in large numbers given everything we have all endured
• The increasing cost of everything related to the event
In addition we were determined to plan an event that would meet the safety and licensing
requirements of the Safety Advisory Group and GBC.
Many hours were spent and much discussion took place looking at at different alternatives and finally we took the very difficult decision to dispense with the Torch Light Procession as it would be virtually impossible to allow for any degree of social distancing in the High Street.
We were more relaxed about the Fireworks display on Stoke Park given the size and area of the park itself.
To ensure a safe environment that would allow people to practice social distancing and to meet any potential regulatory requirements, we decided to break with tradition and to make it a ticketed event. This allows us to limit the number of people on the park and avoid any potential overcrowding
With the loss of the torchlight procession we felt needed to bring in alternative entertainment hence the introduction of live music from an award winning cover band, Blurasis, quality hot food including vegan options, a licenced bar and hot and cold drinks
Our costs are considerably higher this year and without the support of our brilliant sponsors RADical Systems (UK) Ltd, GBC, Chapters Financial Ltd, HSBC, Big Yellow and The Boileroom the Firework Fiesta could not happen.
Nevertheless there are still significant costs to cover so we are relying on great support from the public to allow us to plough profits back into the local community
We have kept ticket prices down to ensure the event is accessible to as many people as
possible and are priced at just £10 per adult with accompanied children under 16 free.
This year every penny of profit will be used to support the Guildford Sea Cadets in their great work with local children and our own Club Welfare Committee which supports local people in need so please buy your tickets now!
