IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please help us to keep this a family-friendly event that everyone can enjoy safely.
Organisers are preparing for Feast of Fire to go ahead as planned and don’t anticipate any major disruption due to the weather. Specialist weather forecasts and local conditions have been continually monitored in the run-up to this evening’s event. The safety of the public and the event team is paramount. In the event of extreme weather, some changes may need to be made to the planned programme.
Feast of Fire is an outdoor and standing event that takes place at night-time - please watch your step and move slowly.
Please avoid loose clothing, though wear clothes to keep you warm and dry, with sensible shoes for walking.
Portable, picnic or collapsible chairs and stools cannot be accommodated.
Feast of Fire is NOT a traditional fireworks event. However the evening will be punctuated by fire and pyrotechnic effects for Spellbound between 6.30pm and 7pm, and then a combination of fireworks, fire drawings and live music will feature with Mr Wilson's Second Liners and DJ Ritu, on a fiery stage from 10pm and 10.30pm in The Point Car Park. Timings are subject to change and are approximate.
Please do not bring pets or very small children, infants and babies. Registered assistance dogs are welcome.
Please do not touch any of the burning metal fire sculptures - they are very hot and fiery, and you could be badly burnt!
No BBQs, sparklers, fireworks or bonfires are permitted from members of the public.
Feast of Fire is suitable for families (please see the note above about very small children) and Spellbound in particular is for people of all ages. The Spellbound show starts at 6.30pm in The Point Car Park.
