Charity Firework Extravaganza at Conkers

Moira, nr. Swadlincote – On Saturday 6th November 2010, Conkers Discovery Centre in the heart of the National Forest is playing host to Ashby Rotary and their annual fireworks display in aid of local charities. Doors open for the event at 5pm, with the first, smaller fireworks display taking place at 6.45pm then the main display at 7.30pm. There will be hot food available, including a barbecue, fully-licenced bar and divas disco. Kids can have their faces painted and older children can try out some of the crazy rides. Chris Sturdy, general manager, said: ”Each year, this event grows ever-more popular and it raises a lot of money for important local charities.” “For anyone planning to attend, I’d suggest that they aim to arrive early as there is a lot for the whole family to do. It’s much more than a mere firework display!” Tickets, bought in advance, cost £5 for adults and £2.50 for children and £6 and £3 on the gate. To book please visit Conkers Reception or telephone 01283 216633 between 10am – 4pm. For further information regarding Conkers, please visit the website ENDS
