Fire­works night out for pri­vate book­ing at Dum­fries House

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

The spec­tac­u­lar an­nual fire­works show at Dum­fries House has fiz­zled out this year.

A shock an­nounce­ment on Mon­day told fans of the huge dis­play there would be no colour­ful show next month.

A post from the 2000- acre Cum­nock es­tate apol­o­gised for the short no­tice and promised Ayr­shire’s big­gest dis­play would be back in 2018.

Thou­sands of peo­ple flock to the venue to see the sky lit up be­hind the Pal­la­dian coun­try house to the sound of mu­sic.

The Dum­fries House so­cial me­dia post said:“We are sorry to an­nounce that there will be no fire­work dis­play at Dum­fries House this year. We would like to apol­o­gise for the short no­tice and hope we will see you next year at an ex­tra- spec­tac­u­lar 2018 Fire­work Event.”

A Dum­fries House spokesman said:“The fire­works event was not sched­uled for this year due to a long- stand­ing book­ing for a pri­vate event at the house it­self. Staff have be­gun to make plans for a big­ger and bet­ter 2018 fire­works dis­play and, in the mean­time, look for­ward to wel­com­ing guests to forth­com­ing com­mu­nity events such as Santa’s Grotto and fes­tive can­dlelit tours of the house.”

The fire­works ex­trav­a­ganza is un­der­stood to be one of the largest in the UK.
