We are a voluntary organisation working with all members of the public to enhance the community spirit and connection of all individuals in the Arbroath & District area.
Fireworks for Arbroath was founded in November 2014.
That was the year Angus Council stopped providing organised fireworks displays for the community to attend.
A community group was set up, and fundraising began in earnest.
We held hugely successful displays at Inchcape Park in 2015 and 2016.
We then became victims of our own success and Inchape was deemed unsafe by the authorities for the amount of spectators.
So with trepidation in 2017 we headed to our first display at RM Condor.
This was also a great success, with Police Scotland estimating spectators at over 7000 people.
We fundraise all year round and we always need extra volunteers on the night.
This year our display will be Saturday 3rd November 2018 (again at RM Condor).
