Once again the King Coel’s Kittens are preparing for their Annual Fireworks Display in Castle Park on Monday 5th November, 2018.  The biggest Fireworks display in the area which has been designed by Dynamic Fireworks at Stanway.  This year the theme is Disney. The King Coel’s Kittens organisation was formed in 1962 and this will be their 48th display, raising valuable funds to support people and groups with special needs living in the local community.

Money raised from the 2017 display went towards St Annes Community Hall to furnish a secure outside area for people who are blind and deaf, Hospital Radio Colchester to update outside broadcasting equipment, Water Feature in Castle Park plus the purchase of many small items for groups in the local community.

Gates open at 6pm with entertainment being provided by Michael J Fitch. The Guy procession commences at 7pm from the Band Stand lead by the Colchester Town Watch with the Beefeaters parading Guy Fawks before he is placed onto the top of the bonfire. The fireworks display, fired by Dynamic Fireworks, commences at 7.30pm. The event is also being supported by Andy Starr of Rollerworld who has offered anyone who brings a genuine Fireworks ticket from the event will get one free Roller Skating admission during the week after the 5th November, 2018 on production of that ticket on entry to Rollerworld.  Andy has also donated spot prizes for Michael Fitch to use during the evening.
