Bad weather means no fireworks at Maidenhead Christmas lights event

A firework display planned for tonight's Christmas lights switch-on in Maidenhead has been cancelled due to the miserable weather.

A message posted on social media sites by the Enjoy Maidenhead team this morning said the high winds forecast in the area meant letting off fireworks from the roof of the town hall would no longer be possible.

The switch-on of the lights will go ahead as planned in St Ives Road at 6pm.

Paralympic triple gold medallist Sophie Christiansen will flick the switch alongside Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Colin Rayner.

The countdown starts at 5pm.

Festive-themed activities will also be held at the Nicholsons Centre throughout the day.

They include a Christmas emporium at the Craft Coop.

There will also be live music, entertainment and a visit from Father Christmas.

Free parking will be available in the town centre from 4pm onwards and the town hall car park from 5pm.

See next week's Advertiser for photos from the event.
