WORCESTER Round Table has announced that it will not be holding its annual fireworks display this year.

It is the third consecutive year the popular display has not been able to go ahead.

The 2019 display was cancelled because of flooding on the racecourse and the covid pandemic caused the cancellation of last year's event.

Hundreds of people usually attend the annual firework and bonfire display on Worcester Racecourse but the organisation has said it sadly will not go ahead this year.

A statement on the Worcester Round Table Facebook page said: "Good afternoon all. It is with deep regret we can not run the fireworks this year.

"We are working behind the scenes for next year's event."

It was signed off by the organising team.

For over 50 years, Round Table volunteers have organised the Bonfire and Fireworks celebrations at Worcester Racecourse to raise money for good causes and charities.

All profits made are distributed throughout the year to Worcester-based charities.

Previously, the fireworks display has raised money for Kinship Carers, The Myriad Centre and Headway Worcestershire.
