TOWN’S FIREWORKS TICKETS GO ON SALE
Tickets are now on sale for the Town’s Fireworks Evening staged by Linlithgow Rugby Club at Mains Park on Saturday 01 November at 7pm.
This year, the fireworks will be set off at 7.30 pm on the evening of Saturday 1 November. Tickets will be on sale at:
- Far from the Madding Crowd,
- The News Shop,
- Norman Cummings,
- the Spar Linlithgow Bridge and, of course, from
- the Rugby Club itself.
And this year there is a new deal. Linlithgow Rugby Club President, Craig Young, explained, “We have always said that it is very helpful for everyone if tickets can be bought in advance. It avoids queues and delays on the evening.”
Early Bird Offer
“Therefore, anyone who buys tickets right up to Friday 31 October, the day before the Fireworks Evening, will pay the same price that the tickets have been for the past few years. That is £10.00 for a family and £4.00 for an individual. Tickets sold on the day itself will cost £15.00 for a family and £5.00 for an individual. We hope this “early bird” offer will encourage people to buy their tickets in advance.”
Craig added that the Rugby Club this year will not be looking for any contributions for its bonfire. This will be the first year that the Fireworks Evening will not include a bonfire. Craig said, “There is no safe place to locate the bonfire now that we have built the exciting new community training facility. We took the view that the longer-term benefits to the town and the club were greater than the loss of a place for the bonfire.”
He added, “There will still be half an hour’s fireworks display and glow toys for sale plus hot soup and other refreshments in the Club House with a barbeque on the go, all the usual ingredients that make it a wonderful family evening.
Craig concluded, “The Town Fireworks Evening still represents the best value around and we hope that the people will flock to Mains Park as usual to enjoy themselves. All proceeds are reinvested in the work the Rugby Club does in the community.”
