HMS Raleigh Firewoks Display 5th Nov (1830)
Members of the public are invited to join the staff and trainees at HMS Raleigh on Monday 5 November for a grand firework display.
Two times British-champions, Fantastic Fireworks, have been asked to provide the display, which will be viewed from the parade ground over St John’s Lake.
Gates to the training base, in Torpoint, will open at 18.30 and admission is free. Prior to the fireworks the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Plymouth will give a performance leading into a sunset ceremony, with a guard of honour drawn from the current group of recruits.
Warrant Officer 1 Paul Bell, HMS Raleigh’s Base Warrant Officer, said: “Last year’s firework display was a huge success and we are hoping to build upon that this time. This year’s theme is movies, so visitors can expect to hear some very familiar songs during the accompanying soundtrack. We are looking forward to the local community joining us for what promises to be a great night.”
There will be no parking on site except for blue-badge holders. A number of catering outlets will be within HMS Raleigh to provide refreshments. No sparklers are allowed.
