It will be an unusually quiet November 5 this year as Halton’s Fireworks Display has been cancelled due to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak.
The Council is disappointed not to be able to stage this hugely popular family occasion, but it is not possible to hold such an event in the current situation.
However, it is hoped that the display will be back with a bang next year when a fantastic event is proposed as part of Halton’s Borough of Culture celebrations.
Cllr Eddie Jones, the Council’s portfolio holder for Visitor Economy and Events, says: “We have delayed this decision as long as possible, however we have now, regrettably, had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event, which is enjoyed by many thousands of our residents every year. But we have no choice and I am sure local people will understand that, and will not be surprised by the decision. The health and safety of residents and staff is paramount.
“However, we are being positive and looking ahead to next year when Halton becomes the Liverpool City Region Borough of Culture, and a very special celebratory fireworks display is planned as part of a very exciting programme.”
