Lighting up Chesterfield’s skies

Chesterfield’s skies will once again be lit up at Chesterfield Borough Council’s annual firework extravaganza.

The event takes place at Stand Road Recreation Ground in Whittington Moor on Thursday 3 November.

The gates open earlier this year at 4pm with a fun fair.

Popular presenters from Peak FM with provide fun with their roadshow before the fireworks display at 7pm, one hour earlier than in previous years.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centre and visitor economy, said: “We hold the fireworks each year as part of our commitment to staging community events.

“It is always extremely popular and this year we have listened to feedback from parents to bring the fireworks forward to 7pm to allow more families to come along and take part.”

Entry to the event will cost £2. Visitors are asked to have the correct money as change cannot be given.

There will also be refreshments available from a variety of food and drink stalls.
