Llandudno Fireworks Display Postponed

Strong winds have postponed one of North Wales prominent fireworks displays at Llandudno Pier

The annual Fireworks Display held at Llandudno Pier usually attracts thousands of people to the town to witness its amazing display.

The Llandudno Fireworks Display, which was due to take place this evening, has now been moved due to predictions of 40mph gusts of wind today.

On Social media, Facebook organisers said that due to the wind speeds being so high, it means they could not put the display on for safety reasons.

Instead, they have re-arranged to hold the display tomorrow at 7 pm.

The Llandudno display is one North Wales largest and most widely attended fireworks displays, however, this latest hiccup is one of several that have occurred in recent years.

Two years ago, at the eleventh hour, the display was cancelled due to insurance issues regarding the use of the pier for the display.

Returning last year the display was held on the shore for the first time, however, a fast incoming tide caused issues towards the end of the show.

This year it was decided to hold the Bonfire Night celebration, which traditionally takes place on November 5, in October in a bid to pick a day in which tides will be least problematic.

An estimated 10,000 locals and tourists come to see the display every year.

Before the new rules, the event had taken place on the pier each year since 2001.
