21CC, who are running the Hopetoun House fireworks (among others) will be launching the Kirknewton Firework Display after last years hugely successful event.  This year we have put more funds into the firework show thanks to your kind donations last year.

Entry to the park is by ticket only for adults, and security will be there on the night.  Children under 18 go free.  Children at primary school age must be accompanied by an adult.  Ticket entry will go back to community activities and next years show.

Please note official event organiser lightsabres for children will only be available in Festival Stores – available to purchase for only £3 in advance or on the night.  Unofficial vendors will be in the streets and we advise not to purchase from them.

Please prepare for the Kirknewton Fireworks display with our ten pieces of advice;
1 – Please wrap up warm and wear suitable footwear on the night.  If it rains the show will still go ahead.  We will only postpone in very heavy winds.
2 – Please bring a torch.
3 – Please walk and avoid travelling by car if you can.  Please park from train station car park up to park and avoid Main Street except for dropping off elderly and infirm.  You can reach Kirknewton on 28 bus or train from Edinburgh.
4 – Please enter by the bottom entrance of the park if possible (Whitemoss Road) – pop into the Festival Stores shop for food and drink
5 – Set up will begin around 2.30pm in the park. Entry to the back of the park and pitch will be limited from 5pm onwards as the fireworks are set up. At this time and on the night do not go beyond the cordon for your safety and to ensure the show continues.  Please do not bring pets.
6 – Entry to the park will not be possible when the show starts (approx 8pm) so please be in plenty of time.  Events begin at 7.30pm
7 – Note we are not selling anything other than supporting the sale of refreshments from the shop and light sabres for children. Avoid any other vendors who may set up and sell you items.  Black bags will be available for rubbish.
8 – This is a charity event.  If you save money on travel to another diSplay, enjoy from home or feel the event is worth more to you then please donate by mobile text message.  You can donate to the charity by Text message to 70070 with the message KCDT01 followed by £2, £5 or £10 – a donation by text does not give you entry to the park.  There will be no donation buckets this year.
