Bond themed fireworks and fire performer live on stage

A FAMILY bonfire event takes off this weekend with new attractions and live entertainment.

Wilmslow Bonfire returns at 5pm on Saturday, November 6 and promises to be one of the biggest charity displays in Cheshire.

The lighting of the bonfire will be followed by a spectacular show from fire performer Sarah Spiral who promises to stun spectators with dazzling displays and visual effects live on stage.

The main firework display promises a cinematic experience with a James Bond theme that will be synchronised to Bond theme songs from the past 60 years.

Paul D’Ambra, chairman of Wilmslow Round Table, said: “We are thrilled to be able to bring the Wilmslow Bonfire event back to the Carnival Fields this year and deliver a community focussed event, continuing to raise funds for incredible charities and worthy causes in the area.”
