The borough’s annual fireworks display has a new home this year.

The free family event on November 6 will be moved from Roundwood Park to Wembley Park following a sponsorship deal by developers Quintain.

Visitors will also be treated to street entertainment and there will food stalls throughout the afternoon before the display starts at around 6.30pm.

Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to find a wonderful sponsor in Wembley Park which means, despite the significant cuts to our budget, we are able to provide a free event for all the family to enjoy again this year. “By moving the event from Roundwood Park to Wembley Park more Brent residents will be able to travel to the display easily thanks to the excellent public transport links to Wembley.”

James Saunders, chief operating officer at Quintain, the company behind the redevelopment of Wembley Park, added: “Wembley Park has a buzzing and vibrant community and we look forward to everyone coming together to enjoy the show.”

Fuse Fireworks have been awarded the contract to deliver the show.
