Brent residents left in the dark as fireworks move from Roundwood park

Wembley Stadium’s arch will be having the night off, while Wembley Fireworks takes its place to light up the sky this evening.

Brent Fireworks Day used to be held in Roundwood Park but Brent Council have confirmed that due to government cuts it will be moving to Wembley Park.

The Brent Council website, announced:

Join us at and around Arena Square, Wembley Park for fireworks that promise to be an exciting fun family event with vibrant street entertainment from a number of performers, great street food to tickle your taste buds and an exciting fireworks display set to a top-secret soundtrack at approximately 6.30pm in the evening.

Moving the fireworks to Wembley Park has left some residents in the dark.

History and tradition rewritten in Brent, Fireworks day now on November 6th

Are local authorities dazzled by property developer wealth?

Or is this a savvy move by Brent Council that has rescued the event and saves money

Although rain has been forecasted, that won’t be enough to extinguish the free fireworks display starting approximately 6:30pm at Arena Square which is in front of Wembley Arena.
