The city that’s determined to spread some joy this Bonfire Night

Posted on September 22, 2020

As the nation’s leading fireworks company we are proud and delighted to be working on an event that will keep the home fireworks burning this Bonfire Night.

While almost every other Bonfire Night fireworks display has been cancelled St Albans Cathedral Council is determined that its annual fund-raising spectacular will go ahead.

Instead of a ticketed event for thousands of people in Verulamium Park, an aerial display is planned that will be visible from doorsteps across the city, without the need for people to leave their homes. The display will also be live streamed on YouTube.

A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to pay for the display with any surplus going to local charities.

Paul Dean, chair of the Cathedral’s fireworks team, said: ‘If our crowdfunding campaign is successful, St Albans will have the only known public display in the UK.

‘Staging the Fireworks Spectacular this year will really give everyone a lift.

‘Our slogan, ‘Look Up Together’, and images of the Cathedral Tower wreathed in fireworks, are now symbols of the city’s resilience and determination not to be cowed by COVID.’

In past years the event has raised tens of thousands of pounds for local charities like The Hospice of St Francis and Youth Talk.
