Llandudno bringing back fireworks – everything you need to know

LLANDUDNO’s firework display is set to come back with a bang this November.

The display will be held on Sunday, November 7 at 6.20pm at Llandudno North Shore beach.

If adverse weather conditions prevent the event from going ahead on this date, it will be held on Monday, November 8 at 7pm.

A spokesperson for Llandudno Town Council said: “These dates are the only ones that fit in with tidal times and ranges that allow sufficient time to safely set up, hold the display, and then remove all the equipment necessary to fire the display.

“The event is subject to the weather, and any changes to Covid-19 regulations and Alert levels.”

Last year the event was cancelled due to the pandemic.

The display attracts about 20,000 spectators.

Llandudno Town Council has organised the display since its inception back in 1976.

The spokesperson added: “Following on from the huge success of 2019’s fireworks, and the disappointment of the cancellation of the 2020 display a fantastic show is anticipated.

“The town council would also like to thank Llandudno Pier for again offering to provide all the machinery and manpower needed to ensure the display is able to be ‘fired’ safely from the beach. This major event couldn’t proceed without their help, and that of their superb team.

“The success of this event is fantastic for residents, visitors, the local economy and for Llandudno’s standing as a premier tourist destination. Putting on what many consider to be one of the best fireworks displays in North Wales is, however, not without its challenges.

“To ensure the continued safe operation of this major event, discussions are ongoing between the Town Council and Conwy County Borough Council.”

A road closure will be in place for the Promenade Road.

The spokesperson said: “The council apologises in advance for any disruption this may cause and asks the public to please understand that this road closure is required to ensure they can enjoy another fantastic display in a safe environment.”

Fears were raised in 2019 that 2019 was the final display; this was due to increasing costs and a ‘backlash’ to the event being hosted in October.
