Annual Fireworks Display

Falkirk Community Trust has announced that this year’s annual fireworks display at Callendar Park, which was due to take place on 5 November, will not be possible under the existing COVID related guidance.

This decision has been made considering the new Scottish Government health related guidance coming into effect on 1 October, requiring proof of vaccination for unseated events with more than 4,000 attendees and the pressing need to support the NHS and emergency service partners at this time.

The annual Falkirk fireworks display normally attracts between 25,000 and 30,000 visitors and it is simply not possible to fence off the whole site and provide a sufficient number of stewards to check that everyone has been double vaccinated before allowing entry

This is the second year that the annual Falkirk fireworks display has been unable to be delivered, however the virus has not gone away and the risk of transmission is much higher when large groups of people gather. It was hoped that the fireworks display would return to Callendar Park this November and plans were underway to welcome back the usual crowds given the relaxation of the restrictions from 9 August, however the most recent Scottish Government announcement on the organisation of such events has had to be taken into consideration

Neil Brown, Chief Executive for Falkirk Community Trust, said, “We are sorry to have to announce this news, but I am certain that those who had been looking forward to attending this event will understand this decision. We must continue to reduce the level of transmission of the virus and do everything we can to prevent its spread.”

Falkirk Community Trust retains an excellent safety record at previous Falkirk firework events, whilst being supported by key partners such as Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service.
