Charity: Donations to Peterborough TBC

Covid Safe: People will drive onto the site, have their tickets scanned by stewards wearing visors and gloves. Each car will be given a flyer with event specific details including site map, sponsors, FM Frequency, Charity details etc. This will reduce the need to contact stewards for questions Cars will then be directed to a parking space. Once parked everyone will need to stay within touching distance of their car. Stewards will be circulating to monitor that this is happening. Toilets will have monitored 2m spaced queuing systems and be cleaned regularly

Unique Event: People with special needs or kids who may not like fireworks can watch from within the warmth of their cars which will reduce the noise of the display, and music volume can be adjusted yourself on your car stereo. Every vehicle will have a great view of the display high above the site Event organiser Martin Allen says: We are really excited to be able to provide our Choreographed display to the residents of Peterborough. The Audience can view from a covid safe viewing area next to their car where they can shelter from the November weather if need be. With the unique element of having the radio broadcasting directly to each vehicle it will enable everyone to engage with the event and enjoy the stunning display.
