Bonfire night plans revealed for Aberdeen

Aberdeen council chiefs are hoping this year’s November 5 fireworks display go off with a bang – 12 months after the celebration was cancelled at the 11th hour.

The traditional Guy Fawkes event will be held at the Beach Boulevard, with the action beginning at 6.30pm.

It will feature firewalkers and fire jugglers as the prelude to the main pyrotechnic display at 7.30pm.

Free Park and Ride buses are available from Bridge of Don, Kingswells and Altens with timetables available on the city council website.

Fiery displays will illuminate the skies across Britain to mark the 412th anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot- where Guy Fawkes and his conspirators attempted to assassinate King James I of England and VI of Scotland by blowing up the House of Lords.

Last year’s celebrations were tinged with disappointment for thousands of revellers after the council cancelled the show just before 5pm.

The authority apologised and issued a statement, saying they “were extremely disappointed”, but that winds of up to 45mph would have put public safety in danger.

Lord Provost Barney Crockett said he was confident this year’s show would be one to remember.

He added: “I think this is a great event for the city and I would encourage everyone to come down and have a good time.

“It is always unfortunate that we have to deal with the weather and last year had to be unexpectedly cancelled.

“But I think that, this year, everyone will really enjoy themselves in what is one of the top events in our calendar.”
