Rushmoor Fireworks Spectacular - POSTPONED until 15 November
Manor Park, Aldershot - now 15 November.
Important information - Rushmoor Fireworks Spectacular postponed until 15 November
Unfortunately, the weather forecast for this Saturday evening (1 November) is not good, and we have taken the decision to postpone the Rushmoor Fireworks Spectacular on safety grounds.
The event has been rescheduled for Saturday 15 November.
Why the event has been postponed until Saturday 15 November
Although a sunny day is forecast for Saturday, with clear skies in the evening, the wind strength at the time of the displays is predicted to be 13mph with gusts of up to 22mph.
More importantly, however, is the direction of the wind, which is forecast to be blowing from the fireworks' firing site directly towards the spectators. In these circumstances, our fireworks company 'Frontier Fireworks', would not be in a position to fire, and as a result they have taken the decision not to perform our displays.
Having had to postpone last year's event for similar reasons, we are extremely disappointed to have to do the same again, but clearly must follow the safety advice given to us.
