Remember, remember the 5th of November. It’s that time of year again, and for a change, bonfire night falls on a Saturday night. There’s always a tremendous display put on at Barry Island each year, so here is all the information you need to know about the event!

It’s full systems ahead for Saturday, with the weather expecting to be Sunny and Dry.
Once again the fireworks display will be produced by Pendragon Fireworks of Cwmbran who were winners of the British Firework Championships 2008 and second place at British Firework Champion of Champions Competition 2013 and always produce an awesome display for us at Barry Island.
The actual display is fired from Friars Point (which of course is closed off to the public on the night) so there is fantastic viewing from anywhere on the Barry Island Sea Front and Gardens, plus all the Barry Island Traders will be open on the evening for some great food and drink. Danters Funfair http://www.barryislandpleasurepark.co.uk
will also be open on Saturday – so a good opportunity for all the family to have a fun filled evening! Be sure to stock up Barrybados chocolate bars donuts from the Rock Shop.
Please remember that this year the car parking is ‘Pay & Display’ by the Vale of Glamorgan Council – and the ticket machines ONLY accept COINS!
UPDATE: – The Vale of Glamorgan Council has agreed to donate all monies received through parking to the Rotary Club of Barry.
Friars Road & Paget Road will be CLOSED to ALL traffic – including bicycles from 5.3opm until 9.30pm – so even if you are parked on either of these roads before they close – once they are closed you will NOT be able to move you car until after 9.30pm or until the roads re-open dependant on the crowds!
You can also get to Barry Island on the Barry Tourist Railway starting at Hood Road from 6.15pm and the last train from Barry Island back to Hood Road at approximately 8.45pm!
It is important for spectators to help keep this event going by putting a donation into any of the collecting buckets on the night. If you cannot see any collecting buckets – you can always drop off your donation to the big white Double Deck Commentary Unit supplied by JPL Sound & Communications who provide the sound system for the evening (and have done for over 40 years!) up on the sea front gardens where there will be a collecting bucket there!
Finally please, please remember – as there are always big crowds with lots of small children – NO SPARKLERS are to be lit anywhere on the Island please – this is a safety event and we do not want to see anyone with a serious burn from a sparkler that should have not been on site! Keep them for your own use at home!
So there you have it, we honestly cannot wait and please support Barry Rotary Club in anyway possible!
