Guildford Lions’ ‘Firework Fiesta’ to go ahead this year.

September 12, 2021| News + Events, Current Issue

After the cancellation of the fireworks in 2020 due to the lockdown restrictions it’s great to see that the Guildford Lions Firework Fiesta will be going ahead this year.

Guildford Lions are delighted to confirm our annual fireworks display WILL take place this year, on Saturday 6th November at Stoke Park, albeit with a number of changes.

To ensure the evening remains as safe as possible we have decided to make some radical changes which can be summarised as follows:

  1. Due to the current concerns and uncertainties it is with real regret we must confirm that there will not be any torchlight procession this year. Our concerns centre on the lack of available space for social distancing.
  2. The fireworks display on Stoke Park will still go ahead as the size of the park will allow people to socially distance if they so wish.
  3. To offset the loss of the torchlight procession we will be introducing live music for the first time. This will feature Blurasis an award winning band who cover songs by a host of artists including Blur, Oasis, Coldplay and many more.
  4. Peter Gordon will again be our MC.
  5. Again, for the first time the event will be an all ticket affair and contactless only. Gates will open at 5.00pm, the music will be at 6.00pm & 7.30pm with the fireworks at 8.30pm.
  6. Tickets will cost £10 per adult with children under 16, accompanied by their parents, free. Tickets will be available via www.seetickets.com – early bird ticket sales will be starting shortly priced at £8.00.
  7. There will be a full licensed bar, a real ale marquee and a gin bar by Pub of the Year The Star Inn, Godalming plus delicious hot food by Mandira’s Kitchen.
  8. Free parking will again be available at the Spectrum and The Guildford College with disabled parking available at the Guildford High School on London Road.

It will be wonderful to once again host such a wonderful community event and as ever ALL profits from the evening will be used to support our clubs welfare fund and also the Guildford Sea Scouts.
