Torch­lit pro­ces­sion in Wok­ing­ham

The Wokingham Paper - - NEWS - David Gold from Wok­ing­ham Fire­works writes:

This year is the 30th an­niver­sary of the Wok­ing­ham Fire­works Char­ity Spec­tac­u­lar.

Over the years there have been a num­ber of changes to en­hance your ex­pe­ri­ence. Hav­ing started with your lo­cal Uni­corn Club – Wind­sor For­est

– we were shortly joined by Thames West Uni­corn then, as the event grew, Wok­ing­ham and Easthamp­stead Ro­tary Clubs and Wok­ing­ham Lions joined to form The Wok­ing­ham Fire­works Char­i­ta­ble Trust.

Five years ago we in­tro­duced on- line pro­gramme sales via our web­site which were then mailed out.

This year we have re­vised this ser­vice, with the help of EventBrite, so that you can now buy your tick­ets on line and print them in the com­fort of your own home.

The process is very sim­ple, just fol­low the link on our web­site - www. wok­ing­ham-fire­ - and you can have your tick­ets in hand within a few min­utes.

Th­ese will be scanned on your ar­rival at the field. You can, of course, still pur­chase en­trance pro­grammes from a num­ber of re­tail­ers such as Bar­clays Bank, New­bury Build­ing So­ci­ety, Tesco, Pur­ple But­ter­fly, An­tique Rose and the Wok­ing­ham In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

Ad­vanced sales for this years’ event are up on 2017 and we would en­cour­age ev­ery­one to take ad­van­tage of the dis­counted price of £5 per per­son (chil­dren seven and un­der go free). Th­ese tick­ets are avail­able un­til Fri­day 2nd Novem­ber after which the price will rise to £7.50 per per­son. Once again, chil­dren aged seven and un­der go free.

Please re­mem­ber all prof­its from this event are do­nated to lo­cal char­i­ties. We would like to thank all of our spon­sors and of course our cus­tomers for their con­tin­ued sup­port.

Why not join us at 6pm for the tra­di­tional torch­light pro­ces­sion, start­ing from Mar­ket Place, Wok­ing­ham, led by St Se­bas­tians Band and the Town and Bor­ough May­ors.

The dis­play at Cant­ley Fields, where there is also a Fun­fair and food ven­dors, com­mences at 7.30pm

We look for­ward to see­ing you on Satur­day.

We will have en­tries from the poster com­pe­ti­tion on our web­site, wok­ing­ham. to­day
