Chester-le-Street Cricket Club's Firework Event Will Be Bigger & Better Than Ever

Chester-le-Street Cricket Club's Firework Event Will Be Bigger & Better Than Ever

In a strategic move to enhance and preserve its longstanding fireworks tradition, Chester-le-Street Cricket Club (CC) has forged a partnership with Durham Cricket. This collaborative effort marks a significant milestone as the annual November fireworks event finds a new home at the iconic Seat Unique Riverside venue.

The relocation to Seat Unique Riverside signifies a pivotal shift towards expanding the event's reach, improving accessibility, and fortifying its resilience against weather-related disruption after inclement weather affected last year's event.

With a larger and more adaptable space available, organisers are gearing up to accommodate a substantial increase in attendance, anticipating a crowd of over 10,000 eager spectators. This marks a notable increase from previous years, where the maximum capacity was capped at 6,000 people.

Rob Warren, the Site Director at Durham Cricket, echoes the excitement surrounding this transformative partnership, stating, “We’re delighted to join forces with Chester-le-Street CC for this cherished event. Together, our aim is to elevate the traditional fireworks display into a comprehensive family entertainment extravaganza. With exciting plans for additional entertainment offerings and leveraging our cutting-edge facilities, we're poised to deliver an unforgettable experience that sets a new benchmark for community events across the Northeast.”
