Millennium Fireworks In Kenilworth At Last

While many people are enjoying the hot sun over bank holiday, a Warwickshire town is having a delayed start to the millennium.

The fireworks that should have gone off in Kenilworth on 31 December last year were kept in storage, because there was no one to light the fuse.

Fears surrounding the hype of hugely-inflated waged for staff to man the show meant Warwick District Council only ran one fireworks night on Millennium Eve, and it was held in Leamington’s Jephson Gardens. The shows planned for Kenilworth and Warwick were put on hold.

But the fireworks will be a major part of a community event that should attract thousands of people in the Abbey Fields in Kenilworth tomorrow.

There will be music from the West Midlands Police Brass Band and Corps of Drums and from Rise, a band based in Kenilworth, plus Leamington’s Sambassadors of Groove

The millennium summer show will run throughout the afternoon and evening on Saturday. It has been organised the Rotary, Round Table, Lions and Soroptimists in the town and up to 2,000 people are expected to take part.

They want them to bring their own picnic and enjoy the music and fireworks from 4pm. Entry is free to everyone.
