Chepstow Firework Display 2018

chepstow fireworks 2018
Following the success of recent years, The Round Table Chepstow Community fireworks will be free again thanks to the continued generous funding from Chepstow Town Council and our other sponsors.
But this year the festivities will start earlier with a family fun day starting at 3pm which will include fairground rides for the little ones as well as the usual musical entertainment.
This year there will again be live music from a Blues Brothers tribute band, The Brothers Blue and Kre8tive Kids, and this year they will be joined by the Velha Bataria Samba band, Sarah’s Sidekicks line dancers and choirs and community music groups from the local area.
In another break from tradition, the event will be held on Sunday, 4 November, but will stay at Chepstow School.
The main family firework show will not disappoint with plenty of ‘oooos’ and ‘aaahhs’ on the cards. As usual there will be a special firework display for very young children who may get scared by the loud bangs of the main display. The main event with will follow shortly after the kids display finishes.
As well as a spectacular fireworks display, hot food and drinks will be available to keep everyone fed and warm. Glow sticks, and other flashing and spinning toys can also be purchased to entertain the little ones, and not so little ones. There will also be glitter tattoos and festive stalls from local community groups.
Although entry to the event will be free any donations to the Round Table will be welcome. All proceeds from this and other Round Table events, such as the Santa’s sleigh that tours Chepstow and surrounding villages at Christmas, will go to support local good causes.
The event could not go ahead without the generous support of local business. This year’s sponsors include Bethany Nursing Home, Hicks Logistics ltd and Lincat Catering Equipment.
Chepstow and District Round Table Chairman, Simon Hicks, said: “This is one of our big events of the year and again it will be free to enter this year. The last few years have been so successful that we have decided to expand into the afternoon to make it a fun day for all of the family
“The Round Table members give their time freely to organise this and other events to raise money for good causes and have some fun along the way. Whether they are working on arranging the professional fireworks, organising food or letting people know it is happening this event would not happen without their unstinting support. We are always looking for new members so if anyone fancies coming along then just get in touch.”
