St. George's Preparatory School Bonfire Night and Firework Display


Dear all,

It is with huge regret that we have had to make the late decision this morning to CANCEL this year's bonfire event.

Not only are we battling the continuing bad weather, but unfortunately it has become apparent this morning that these conditions have affected our ability to deliver some essential aspects of the event that are key to ensuring your safety.

We have fought hard to go ahead, putting in alternative parking arrangements when it became clear that the fields were unusable, adding more lighting, security staff and other officials to increase the chances of safely continuing as far as possible. Even now, we have teams of volunteers arriving to prepare food for tonight, many of whom have already put in days of volunteer hours to get to this point. Our wonderful Georgian Association are particularly disappointed, and we can’t thank them enough for their efforts in trying to make the event happen.

We are truly sorry to have to let you all down at this stage. We can’t offer alternative plans for your Friday night, but we will of course be issuing FULL REFUNDS to ALL TICKET HOLDERS via Eventbrite. Refunds will be issued today and can take up to ten days to reach your original payment method, but usually arrive much sooner.

We are busy arranging for any perishable food to be donated to local charities with some also being sold within the school as part of our Children in Need Day. All funds raised will be going to charity.

Thank you to everyone who kept hold of their tickets despite the date change, and were planning to battle through conditions and wrap up warm to join us tonight. This community event means a great deal to us, and we tried everything we could to keep the tradition going this year, but unfortunately this time we have been beaten.

Should you have any queries or wish to ask any questions, please contact

With kind regards and sincere apologies,
The Georgian Association and St. George’s Preparatory School
