Chesterfield Fireworks Extravaganza
Cancelled – Stand Road Fireworks, Friday 3 November 2023
Chesterfield Borough Council has taken the difficult decision to cancel the fireworks display on Friday 3rd November 2023 at Stand Road Park for safety reasons – following the recent severe weather and with more rain forecast ahead of Friday, the ground is and will continue to be too waterlogged to safely host the event.
Councillor Kate Sarvent, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said: “We have been closely monitoring the situation over the last few days, but regrettably we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Fireworks display.
“We know this will come as a disappointment to many families and children who would have been looking forward to attending this popular event – but safety must be our number one priority.
“We know there are other Firework displays planned at other Chesterfield venues and in neighbouring areas and we’d encourage the borough’s residents to support these events rather than hosting their own fireworks displays at home.”
There’s still plenty to look forward to:
