Kingston Rotary Club and Kingston Roundtable regret to announce the cancellation of the annual firework display at Kingsmeadow this year. This is a popular event and we understand that people will be disappointed.
Public safety is the over-riding factor in our decision, and we consulted widely with the local authority and police. When we considered all options, we felt that we could not ensure a safe event with such large visitor numbers. Fireworks brings together a large, static crowd, and it would be extremely challenging to implement Covid-safe measures.
We hope that the situation will be different next year and will work hard to bring this popular event back to Kingston. We look forward to coming back bigger and better in 2022.
