The skies above Newbury Racecourse will once again light up with a spectacular display of fireworks on Saturday November 2nd organised by the Lions Club of Newbury to raise money for their welfare fund, which supports local people throughout the year.
Gates open at 5.30pm for the display at 7.30pm and there will be a decidedly spooky feel about this year’s event, being so close to Hallowe’en.
As well as watching the display, there will be an opportunity to experience a scary maze provided by Zombie Infection (at additional cost).
There will be the usual hot food, drinks and bar plus an additional gin bar, kindly provided by The Catherine Wheel.
Your favourite local radio station, Kennet Radio, will be there keeping you entertained, and the Funfair will also be on site for your enjoyment.

- The Corn Exchange
