Stockton's night sky will once again become a blaze of light and colour as the Borough’s annual firework spectacular brings a rock theme to the Riverside.
On Tuesday 5 November residents and visitors will be able to celebrate 40 years of legendary rock band Queen with a powerful performance of the band’s greatest hits as the sky is lit up with an amazing array of pyrotechnics.
The free event which is organised by Stockton Council is one of the largest displays in the country and attracts thousands of people to Stockton’s Riverside.
From 6pm BBC Tees will kick off the evening with a live radio broadcast from the site. There will also be a fun fair in the Dairy car park (opposite Riverside Road car park) and a range of street stalls serving hot and cold food and drinks.
The stunning firework display by local pyrotechnic firm, G2 will be synchronised to Queen classics such as ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘We are the Champions’ and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. It will start at 7.30pm and will finish by 8pm.
Councillor Ken Dixon, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Leisure and Culture, said: “This is one of the biggest free firework displays in the country so make sure you come and join us for one of the highlights of the Borough’s event calendar – Stockton’s fantastic firework spectacular!
“It’s much safer to come to an organised fireworks event than have your own display so wrap up warm and bring family and friends down to the Riverside for a fun night out. Enjoy the hits of Queen, soak up the atmosphere and see Stockton’s sky line illuminated in a spectrum of colour.”
