Seaton will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Night this November with a fireworks display.

A proposal for an annual fireworks display was first put forward by Promote Seaton – a voluntary group of local business owners, community group volunteers, members of the public and councillors – in October 2020 but this was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now Seaton Town Council has approved a display for Friday, November 5th, to take place at the East Esplanade between the Axe Yacht Club and the Estuary subject to weather and COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

The display will cost £3,250, which councillors agreed should be taken from the Promote Seaton Events budget of £5,000.

Fireworks being used will be marine friendly and the council will be working with other local authorities and organisations to ensure smooth running of the event.

Organisers of Beer Regatta Week have also announced that they will be going ahead with their fireworks display in August, although some other events will not take place this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
