Fireworks in the park

Whizzing and a-banging and still only Monday

Published on November 2nd 2012.

Fireworks in the park

LIVERPOOL’S night sky will be illuminated next week as the city celebrates all things 2012, but, like last year, it's all dark in the north end.

This year’s free 5 November fireworks displays will take place on Mondayat Newsham Park and SeftonPark. 

Starting at 7.30pm, the displays will celebrate major world events which our isle has mounted this year: the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the Olympics and the Paralympics and thus will last about 20 minutes.

The fireworks will be synchronised to a soundtrack which combines modern and classical tracks.  

Visitors to the displays are advised to travel on foot or use public transport, leaving plenty of time to travel to the fireworks.

There is limited accessible parking a Croxteth Drive, Sefton Park and Gardners Drive at Newsham Park. 

Those attending the events are asked not to bring their own fireworks.

 Liverpool city council’s cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “Liverpool’s fireworks displays always have the wow factor, and this year is going to be extra special as we pay homage to all the fantastic events which have taken place in 2012. 

“These displays are also a safe way to enjoy bonfire night and we always encourage people to attend one of the many organised events taking place across the city.” 

Members of the public are being asked to make sure they don’t leave potentially flammable material lying around, and not to give young people timber or other combustible materials for use on bonfires.    

 Fireworks, Sefton Park – Review Field, Croxteth Drive, Newsham Park – Newsham Drive. Monday 5 November 2012. Display starts at 7.30pm

So Stanley Park is dark again, despite Mayor Joe's committment to the North End. Maybe Peel would like to fund a firework display, or how about Liverpool and Everton football clubs?

Have you ever had the opportunity to speak to mayor joe!!! What an ignorant man. , !!! I complained to him. About some issues. And received a reply. To the effect of.
IF YOU DONT LIKE IT. LEAVE THE CITY AND DONT COME BACK. !!!! And then a smarmy comment about i hope my advice is useful to you !!! Obviously. Far more ignorant than the thug John Prescott.
People i have shown his reply to were gobsmacked. How some one in his mayoral role could speak to some liverpool citizens like so. ,! No wonder liverpool gets such a bad name when the leader behaves like a common thug. .

Never is. 20 minutes in the park at the other end of the city. Nice if you live in the south end

The Albert Dock is a daft place. I remember one year trekking all the way down there one freezing cold and windy evening and it had been cancelled because of weather conditions. However we could clearly see two big displays over the water.

Open water is a very windy place, as our lords, masters and property developers keep forgetting.
