Wotton Round Table

Round Table

Charity

We are the Wotton-under-Edge and District Round Table. Made up of men aged 18 – 45 from the local area. We have also supported the Bluecoat School May Fair, the Medieval Fayre and, thanks to the organisers, we were once again at the Nibley Music Festival.

This year we have already supported the Bournstream Trust and we’re always interested in new ideas and opportunities. We’d like to hear from you if we can help in any way.

Money raised from this event is used to support local causes, people, schools and charities.

Nationwide Round Table raised over £400,000 from runing firework displays for their communities in 2018.

Lions Club

Lions Club

Charity

We couldn’t manage the volume of traffic and people without the help of the Lions club. Each year they donate their time for free to help us make the event a success.

If you need disabled access, please contact us and on the night make your way to our New Road entrance.

WCSF

WCSF

Charity

We’d like to thank the WCSF for their continued support of the firework display.

The Wotton Community Sports Foundation (WCSF) is a charity whose objective is to provide sports and recreational facilities for the community in and around Wotton-under-Edge. We’ve got a 999-year lease on a 38-acre site just outside the town (referred to as the “New Road site”), which is the centrepiece of our development plans.

Fire Magic

Fire Magic

Firework experts

They supply all the fireworks for the display and have been doing so for many years.

As well as constantly seeking out new fireworks and effects, they design and build their own firing racks and fusing systems. These measures save time setting up firework displays, give greater control over the final visual effect and improve onsite safety. Why? Because the fireworks are loaded into secure pre-fabricated steel structures, which ensure they fire at the correct angle.

Downton

Downton

The best local haulage company

We’d like to thank the Downton deliveries for supplying us with the wood for this year’s bonfire.

Established and headquartered in Gloucestershire, Downton operates 600 tractor units and 1,800 trailers out of ten major distribution hubs across the UK – Moreton Valence (headquarters), Quedgeley, Coventry, Dunstable, Leeds, Runcorn, Avonmouth, Shepton Mallet, Shotton and Tilbury – and employs around 1,350 staff.

On site

Not just fireworks. To keep you entertained between the shows there are other things for you and your family to enjoy.

Bonfire

We light the fire around 6.45pm. It will be big, so we have to fence and patrol the area to make sure everyone involved is safe.

Please do not bring along your sparklers, and to be honest the bonfire will be impressive enough all on its own.

Hot and cold drinks

Alongside mulled wine, we have a sweet stall selling cold drinks and a selection of things for those with a sweet tooth.

Food Stalls

There will be burgers, hot dogs and mulled wine to keep you warm. If you'd like to see something specific, please drop us an email, we always want to make things better.

Toilets

Up to three chemical toilets are available at the top of the site, near the disabled entrance on New Road.

First Aid

Located at the top of the field, our First Aid ambulance is also the found child collection point. Please notify anyone with a tabard if you need any assistance.

All the fun of the fairground

We have a selection of fairground rides available to entertain everyone while the fireworks are getting ready. Backed by a DJ playing great tunes.

Contact

We have an active facebook page, follow us there for the latest information, a chance to win a free family ticket, and pictures of the event.
