Round Table creates new fireworks event

Winchester Round Table’s usual Bonfire and Fireworks event in Winchester has been cancelled this year, but the organisation will still be bringing fireworks to the city.


At 7pm on Saturday 7th November, they will set off a huge fireworks display from three secret and private locations around the city. The aim is “to cover as much of Winchester in fireworks as possible”.


People are invited to watch from gardens, on streets — socially distanced.


At 7pm, people can raise their Bonfire Torches, or any light, even a mobile phone, to make Winchester light up. The Round Table will have three drones flying over the city, capturing the lights street by street. They will be selling their Bonfire Torches door to door, following the routes of the Winchester Santa Sleigh. Alternatively you can buy from them in the High Street Market on Saturdays during October and November.


The Round Table would welcome donations to its Community Fund. All profits will go to those in need in the city area. To donate, see winchesterbonfire.co.uk.
