The organisers of the annual fireworks display in Ipswich's Christchurch Park have confirmed the show will be back in November after 2020's event was cancelled.

The 11th Ipswich Scout Group, which manages the popular event, has announced the 50th anniversary of the park's fireworks display will be held on Saturday, November 6.

Last year's show was one of many events that fell victim to the Covid pandemic.

The Sheringham Shantymen, who featured on Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway earlier this year, are among the musicians booked to perform in the park for the display.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, October 1 at a cost of £7.00 per child and £9.00 per adult, with proceeds supporting the Scouts and other charities.

Children under 5 years old go free and do not need a ticket.
