Fireworks Night 2021 – A great success

Horsham Sports Club Fireworks Night 30 October 2021


Horsham Sports Club was proud to deliver in partnership with main sponsor Benchmark Capital and in association with Woodstock IT a spectacular sell-out Fireworks Night at the club on Saturday evening. Following last year’s postponed event the Club considered very carefully whether or not to put on a show this year but following wide canvassing across the community and within the Club the decision was made to proceed whilst instituting measures to extend the public viewing area to allow a family friendly and safe environment for a memorable night out for Horsham families. The event was awarded a Covid Awareness Certificate of Approval by Horsham District Council in the week leading up to the event.

Aurora Fireworks of Wisborough Green following on from their recent win in the national British Fireworks Competition stepped up to the plate to ignite a superb show choreographed to music that lit up the skies over Horsham. Families from the town and surrounding areas bought their tickets early as numbers were limited and demand was high as this was one of the few such local events this year.

The fair provided by Colin’s Amusements and Harris’s Funfair delighted children with plentiful fun as the evening got under way. A cornucopia of locally sourced food vendors provided sustenance and delicious options from Candy Floss to Crepes and Gourmet BBQ to Hog Roast. The clubs in-house caterers, La Creperie, delivered a variety of their popular dishes to great acclaim.

Club Chairman, Chris Wassell said:

After much soul searching we decided to run this increasingly popular family event despite the difficult times we are all experiencing. The people of Horsham and surrounding villages responded with their great enthusiasm and welcomed the chance to have an evening out with family and friends in a safe and controlled environment. We hope all enjoyed themselves as much as we did in putting on the event for the community.

Very generous support was provided this year from our main sponsor Benchmark Capital, the locally based Financial Advisors and supported by Woodstock IT and I commend them for taking such an interest in the local community and Horsham Sports Club – they have been fantastic.

This event provides much needed support to guarantee the provision of so many sports at Horsham Sports Club – so a massive thanks to one and all for showing such loyal support. We look forward to welcoming you all back at next summer’s The Big Gig in June.”
