Firework Fiesta as we know it has finished

After more than 44 years and hundreds of thousands of pounds raised for charity, the event will not take place this year. Peterborough Minster Rotary and Peterborough 284 Round Table have helped hundreds of individuals and charity organisations around the city since the early 1970s.

Established in response to a growing number of accidents due to impromptu firework displays, the event grew and began to raise surplus funds for distribution to local charities across the city.

However, rising costs at the East of England showground have made holding the event prohibitive for our Committee and Volunteers who give their time for free.

We wish to thank our supporters and sponsors over the years – you have helped make a big difference to the lives of so many people.
