Thousands of people are expected to ring in the New Year in style thanks to the St Ives fireworks display, paid for by generous contributions from town businesses.

Starting at midnight, this year’s display will see - and hear - more than 125kilos of fireworks released with 2,300 multi-shot fireworks and 350 large aerial shots.

Local award-winning firework provider Celebration Pyrotechnics is supplying the fireworks and delivering the display.

Carl Lamb, manager of St Ives Business Improvement District Manager said: “New Year’s Eve is a huge draw for locals and visitors every year and we are really looking forward to celebrating with an unforgettable fireworks display over the harbour.

“The fireworks are sponsored and completely paid for by St Ives BID through contributions from the local business community, which have all come together to make sure that St Ives is the best place to ring in the New Year.”
