THE skies above Lancaster will be ablaze with colour once again when the annual Firework Spectacular returns to the city.

This year’s pyrotechnic spectacular takes place on the big day itself – Saturday, November 5 – and is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before.

To warm you up for the evening’s event, there will be city centre Guy Fawkes themed activities to enjoy during the day including guided walks, storytelling, arts and crafts and lantern making workshops. There will also be music from the amazing Batala Lancaster samba drum band.

All those taking part in the lantern making will be invited to join a procession from the city centre to St. George’s Quay to mark the start of the evening’s firework festivities.

As last year, the castle and priory precinct will be closed to the public, but spectators will still be able to watch the action at close quarters from nearby Quay Meadow.

It’s also close to the firing zone and will allow people to get as close as possible to enjoy the atmosphere as the fireworks are launched.
