ORGANISERS of the Felixstowe Firework Spectacular are putting the final touches to this year’s display.

The massive professional display will this year be fired to music from the movies.

The action begins at the Felixstowe and Walton United FC Goldstar Ground in Dellwood Avenue, Felixstowe at 5pm on Sunday. There will be a funfair, fire performers and a food village to enjoy ahead of the main event at 7pm.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance is charity partner and will benefit from a proportion of the proceeds.

In Ipswich, the Christchurch Park fireworks will be held tonight, with gates opening at 6pm.

The display will be celebrating 50 years of Bond and there will be a lantern procession as well as live music during the evening.

Our promotions team will be there selling goodie bags with handwarmers, snacks and more.

If you are going to a professional display, or having your own fireworks at home, make sure you photograph or video the pyrotechnics and send us your footage via the iwitness site.
