Southwark Fireworks 2022 update

5 October 2022

Southwark Council has confirmed that the firework display in Southwark Park will not be taking place this year, with no plans for its return going forward.

Cllr Catherine Rose, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Parks, Streets and Clean Air, said: “Southwark Council has made a decision not to hold a fireworks display this year, or going forward. The Cost of Living crisis, coupled with the fallout from Covid-19 means we have a duty to protect essential services that support residents and businesses. We will be using our resources for this, and to support our parks all year round. We know that as a community you will understand the sense in this decision, and thank you for that.”
