THE spectacular Halton Fireworks Display is back and in a new location.

It will be taking place at the Silver Jubilee Bridge on Saturday, November 5.

And this year’s theme is the movies, with a Eurovision twist.

The build-up will start at 6.30pm from the viewing areas on the promenades at West Bank, Widnes, and Mersey Road, Runcorn, and the fireworks will be set off at 7.30pm.

For safety reasons, the Silver Jubilee Bridge will be closed from 9am to 9pm to all traffic - pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the footpath during the day, but this will close from 7pm to 8pm.

A number of roads will also be closed around both viewing areas from 5.30pm.

There is no parking available at West Bank - however, car parking will be available at the Municipal Building, Caldwell Road and the Stadium, which are a 10-15 minute walk.

And the area around the Decks in Runcorn, including the footpath between Irwell Lane and Mersey Road will also be closed off to the public from 4pm.

Spectators are asked not to bring sparklers or fireworks for safety reasons.

This year’s fireworks display is only going ahead thanks to the huge generosity of local businesses: Beesley & Fildes, CDP/Marshalls, DCBL, Esken, Halton Housing, Langtree, Culina/Stobart and Tarmac who are all sponsoring this year’s event for Halton residents.

Cllr Paul Nolan, Halton Borough Council’s portfolio holder for culture and leisure services, said:  “We are so pleased to be able to organise the fireworks event this year for our community. With the cost of living crisis a significant concern to our residents and businesses, we hope this free to attend event will give everyone a night to enjoy in safety.”
