Buckingham Town Council was forced to make the difficult decision to cancel the Buckingham Bonfire and Fireworks event at 9am on Saturday morning. The decision was made due to the extremely boggy conditions at the Bourton Park paddock where the event is held; which experienced staff members judged as too wet for the vehicles moving into the field for the event, and potentially hazardous to those coming to watch the fireworks.
This assessment was made early on the Saturday morning and all parties notified as quickly as possible in order to avoid cancellation fees – this means that the funds used to pay for the event are still available and with some minor changes it has been possible to reschedule the Bonfire and Fireworks this Saturday 9th November.
We are delighted to confirm that Titanium Fireworks will be lighting up the sky with a colour popping display, the event starts from 6pm with music and tasty hot food and drinks, including donuts.
In line with our environmental policies Titanium have told us that they are committed to carbon offsetting, and have already offset 80 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Chair of the Town Centre & Events Committee Councillor Andy Mahi said: “We’re delighted to be able to reschedule the Bonfire and Fireworks as we know how popular it is with residents – we hope to see everyone there on Saturday 9th November at 6pm!”
