Drive-in fireworks display planned for Newark Showground
A drive-in fireworks display is being planned to help ensure Bonfire Night still goes with a bang, despite covid restrictions.
Organisers of the Newark Showground event claim it will be the biggest in the county, with around 4,000 people able to attend.
The display, accompanied by music, will take place on Sunday, November 8, from 5.30pm.
"We are really excited to be able to provide our choreographed display to the residents of Newark," said Martin Allen, of event organisers Entertainment Effects Group Ltd.
"The audience can view from a covid-safe viewing area next to their car, where they can shelter from the November weather if need be.
"With the unique element of having the radio broadcasting directly to each vehicle it will enable everyone to engage with the event and enjoy the stunning display."
To ensure the event is covid-safe, people will drive on to the site and have their tickets scanned by stewards wearing personal protective equipment.
They will be directed to a parking space and, once parked, everyone will need to stay within touching distance of their car.
The event will be hosted by Phil Johnson, of Radio Newark.
It will support the Newark-based charity, the Children's Bereavement Centre.
Ticket cost £25 per car, £20 early bird, or £35 for the VIP viewing, from www.driveinfireworks.uk
