We are delighted to announce that this year the Lightastic Fireworks Extravaganzas raised over £33,500. This was a record year for ticket sales for us. This year we sold out all three Lightastic Fireworks Extravaganzas before the day and welcomed 7500 guests to our Events.
We presented a new Fireworks Extravaganza Event in the North of the city on Friday 4th November at George Heriot’s Playing Fields at Inverleith Row, Goldenacre, Edinburgh.
SLA continued to run its Fireworks Extravaganzas Events on Sunday 6th of November at George Watson’s College Rugby Ground at Myreside Road, South Edinburgh. Due to demand, here we put on two shows.
We are greatly indebted to the many people and organisations that came together to enable this event to go ahead. Thank you to the generous sponsorship from Morrison Construction and Connell and Connell, to George Heriot’s School and Heriot’s Rugby Club for allowing us to hold a Fireworks Extravaganza on their grounds for the first time and to George Watson’s College for once again allowing us to host the Event at Myreside for the 6th year running, and to the fantastic support of so many volunteers, organisations and companies and such a great audience. What a team!
Our aim to find a family friendly fundraising event, supported by the local community is now firmly established.
