As many of you will already know, Lambeth council has cancelled the fireworks on Clapham Common this year which is a real shame and means that a lot of local businesses wont get that annual assured boost, that so many depend on. However the fireworks haven’t disappeared completely … they are going to be on a three year rotation between Clapham, Brockwell Park and Streatham. This year is Brockwell Park’s turn and the fireworks will also be a joint celebration of the bicentenary of Brockwell Hall, now a Grade II listed building. The fireworks will be set to music from the last 200 years and a funfair and stalls, food and mulled wine will be available from 4pm – best of all it’s FREE! Fireworks start at 8pm. Other displays close by are Wimbledon Park on Friday and Battersea Park and Crystal Palace on Saturday, all of which will charge an entry fee. Should you not be around this weekend, next Saturday 12th, The Lord Major’s Show and Fireworks are a definate must see and FREE too! Have fun Clappers and don’t forget your sparklers!!!
