Fireworks 2017 Update – Online Booking Now CLOSED

ONLINE BOOKING IS NOW CLOSED (but don’t worry, tickets will still be available on the gate!)

Our 100th blog post brings you an update on the preparations for our Scout Park fireworks display on the 4th November. With only two weeks to go, set up for the day is well underway and lots of tickets have already been sold. However, due to phenomenal demand, advance booking has now ended, so it is no longer possible to buy tickets online. But no need to worry, you’re still able to buy them on entry to the park on the night! Our Explorers are also selling Feature Display tickets at Scout Park every Wednesday from 6pm-9pm. Please check our tickets page for more details.

As usual, everyone is getting stuck in with preparations for Fireworks. All our teams are working extremely hard to get the word out about the big day, as well as taking care of the mountains of preparation required to meet WWESU’s high standards. Of course, this means all the Explorers are needed to keep everything going smoothly in the run up to the event.

The Publicity Team have been sharing all the latest updates and photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, while Production Team have been hard at work setting up the sound system and lighting in order to project music and light across the entirety of Scout Park, as well as collecting miles and miles of fairy lights and extension leads!

The Creative and Content Teams have been taking care of all the signs, logos and posts for the event, whipping out the purple paint or photo-editing software as required. As usual, our dedicated Quartermasters are taking care of all the equipment required for Fireworks, keeping it all ship shape and in good condition.

And finally, perhaps the most important team of all (or at least we think so…) the Catering Team are planning how to take care of all the Explorers and volunteers on the night with hot food, warm drinks and plenty of snacks!

All the stall holders are also preparing for their roles on the night. We’ve got homemade candyfloss, Krispy Kremes, Norwegian Waffles, BBQ, falafel wraps, pulled pork baps, hot and cold drinks, toffee apples – the list goes on! Plus marshmallow toasting and a big campfire offering some authentic Scout experiences.
