Chesterfield’s fireworks extravaganza returns this bonfire night
Chesterfield Borough Council’s fireworks extravaganza returns later this week, and everyone is welcome to come along.
The council have partnered with Chesterfield Football Club to deliver the entertainment at this year’s event.
The fireworks event takes place at Stand Road Park on Friday 5 November, the gates will open at 4.30pm and close at 9pm.
Presenters James Summers and Elliot Holman from Chesterfield’s 1866 Sport Radio will be hosting the stage show and getting everyone ready for the fireworks display.
There will also be entertainment at the event provided by local band The Rosadocs and Norskov, who previously appeared on TV show The Voice.
Chester the Fieldmouse will also be making an appearance on stage too.
Councillor Kate Sarvent, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said: “The fireworks extravaganza is one of the most popular local events with thousands of people enjoying the display and entertainment each year.
“This year, we have partnered with Chesterfield Football Club to deliver the event and they have organised the great evening of entertainment for everyone to enjoy too.
“Please wrap up warm, wear suitable footwear and come along to join in the fun and see the display.”
Bridget Ball, Chesterfield FC’s marketing manager, said: “The excitement is building as we get closer to the event and we can’t wait to deliver the entertainment and help to make it a night to remember!”
The fireworks display will begin at 7pm and there will also be a selection of fairground rides and food vendors. There will be live entertainment for those attending to enjoy both before and after the fireworks.
Entry to the event is £2 per person – free for children under five. Visitors are asked to have the exact money ready as change cannot be given.
Parking for the event will be available at Chesterfield FC’s Technique Stadium for a donation of £3 per car, which will help cover the cost of stewards with any excess being given to charity.
There is also a bus stop on Sheffield Road which is less than a two-minute walk from the park, find more details about bus services that stop here on the Stagecoach website.
Visitors are reminded that they should not attend this event if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, including a high temperature, a new or continuous cough or a loss of their sense of smell or taste. There will also be plenty of space at Stand Road to ensure visitors can maintain social distancing.
The fireworks extravaganza is one of a series of events organised by Chesterfield Borough Council.
