8:00am Saturday 13th October 2012 in News
THOUSANDS of pounds worth of fireworks will light up the Falmouth skyline on Monday, November 5, when the town’s firefighters host their annual bonfire night celebration.
The event will take place at Falmouth Cricket Club’s ground off Trescobeas Road, with the gates opening at 6pm. Show organiser Giles Kent said: “This year will see nearly £6,500 worth of fireworks being let off to music. “This is guaranteed to be one of the largest displays in the county with a very explosive line up of fireworks, its shaping up to be one of the best I’ve seen.
“Gates will open at 6pm for a 7pm start; I would encourage people to get there in good time as huge crowds arriving at 7pm make it very difficult for us to get everyone in the ground on time.
Entry will be £4 for adults and £2 for children and proceeds will be donated to local charities and good causes. Entertainment on the evening will also include a children’s funfair and a variety of stalls.
