‘Bigger and better’ fireworks display confirms go-ahead after others cancelled

One annual fireworks evening is bucking the trend by announcing it is returning this year and will be bigger and better than before.

While some venues have cancelled displays this year due to Covid fears and insurance complications relating to the pandemic, the annual event run by Hull Wyke Round Table in Swanland has been confirmed as returning.

The display is one of the largest in the East Riding and has been running for several years, however, it was cancelled last year due to Covid.

Organisers have now announced that many of the usual features will be making a return this year, with traditional favourites of hog roast, burgers and hot dogs; but this year they have added new food choices with pizza and Greek food as well.

It comes as Beverley Westwood’s display was cancelled for 2021, along with West Park fireworks display in Goole.

A spokesman for Round Table, who have run the Swanland event since it started over 35 years ago, said: “We’re excited to announce this will be our biggest and best fireworks display yet.”

The event remains one of the few that actually has a large bonfire for spectators to stand and keep warm next to, while watching the stunning display, and that looks to be repeated for 2021 as the organisers added: “With a roaring fire to keep you warm, the family favourites hog roast, burgers and hot dogs to keep you full, this year we are adding pizza and Greek food to the menu and rides for the kids and novelty toys.

“It’s going to be a great night for all the family.”

There will also be mulled wine and a steam organ.

The event takes place at Humberdale Farm, on Tranby Lane, Swanland, and there is plenty of parking on the farm.
