The skies will light up with a spectacular display of fireworks on Saturday 5 November 2011 at Pype Hayes Park, Erdington, organised by Birmingham City Council. 

The council is urging people to attend safe, organised displays, such as this Pype Hayes event.

When the gates open at 4pm, visitors will be able to experience the thrills and spills of the funfair, and warm up with some snacks.  The fireworks will start at 7.30pm.

As always, safety is highest on the agenda and visitors are asked to leave their pets and fireworks at home. Any alcohol or fireworks (including sparklers) brought on site by visitors will be confiscated and destroyed. No dogs, except guide dogs, are permitted.

Councillor Martin Mullaney, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Sport and Culture, said, “We all know the safest way to enjoy fireworks is at a professionally organised event and this fantastic free evening will once again be the most spectacular firework display in Birmingham.  The fireworks draw huge crowds every year and I’m sure this family event will be as popular as ever this year.”

Steve Vincent, Head of Community Safety for West Midlands Fire Service, added: “West Midlands Fire Service always recommends, where possible, that people visit organised firework displays as this reduces any potential risk of harm.”

Event sponsored by Bob Wilson Funfairs.  For further information, call 0121 303 3008 or visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/fireworks.
