Kingston upon Thames
Round Table & Rotary Club
Fireworks Display 2023


It is with great sadness that Kingston Rotary & Kingston Round Table clubs are announcing that we will not be able to run the annual Fireworks Display at the Kingston Weir Archer Athletics Stadium on 3rd November 2023.

Despite our best efforts to meet the more stringent regulations covering crowd safety issues, the demands from key stakeholders, the lack of support from the Borough Safety Advisory Group and the Police South West Events Team, it has become clear that it would be difficult, costly & very time consuming to put on a safe and successful event this year similar to those in the past.

This very successful community event has been running since 1992 and at least £200,000 has been donated to local charities.

Charities we have supported previously include:-

• St John Ambulance - providing voluntary medical assistance

• Kingston Vineyard (Growbaby) - supporting Kingston families with baby supplies

• Kingston Samaritans - providing emotional support

• Kingston Foodbank - helping local people in crisis

• Save the World Club - delivering food to those in Kingston in need

• Voices of Hope - preparing meals & running the Kingston Food Hub

• Doing a Bit - preparing meals for NHS staff, community carers & the vulnerable
