The annual Firework and Bonfire Spectacular at Lydiard Park has been cancelled.

The event, organised by Swindon and North Wiltshire Scouts, has been an annual tradition for people in Swindon for many years.

But, last year's event was cancelled because of the pandemic and this year's event has now joined it. 

In a statement on their social media, the event posted: "It is with greatest sadness that we have to announce that this year's spectacular has been cancelled due to multiple factors.

"We would like to thank our many supporters and volunteers.

"Have no fear, we will commence planning for 2022 once the new year begins.

"We wish you an enjoyable and safe Bonfire Night."
