Hackney’s 2020 fireworks display cancelled
This year’s annual fireworks display in Clissold Park Hackney will not take place, the Council has confirmed.
As issues surrounding the virus persist and lockdown measures continue to evolve, large public gatherings remain a risk to public health.
Cllr Jon Burke, Cabinet Member for Energy, Waste, Transport and Public Realm said: “Sadly this year's Hackney Fireworks display in Clissold Park will not go ahead as the Council continues to focus resources on responding to the coronavirus pandemic. It is also unclear whether such large-scale events will be permitted by the Government in November. We hope to plan a financially viable and environmentally mindful event in future when we are sure it is safe and reasonable to do so.”
