Organisers of one of the district’s biggest firework displays have vowed that the event will go ahead, despite someone setting their bonfire alight in the early hours of this morning (Thursday).
About 80 per cent of the bonfire at St Joseph’s School in Market Harborough was set alight prematurely.
But organiser John Cooper said: “We’re determined to build it up again, and there will be a bonfire on Saturday and a fantastic fireworks display.”
Gates open at 6.30pm. Tickets are £5 adults, £3 children, pre-school children free.
If you have wood and especially wooden pallets that can be used to rebuild the bonfire, contact John on 07850 989603.
