A firework display will be held at the end of Worthing Pier tonight (November, 5).

It has been part of two days of festivities which started yesterday, including the William Cole Funfair.

The main attractions are taking place on the promenade and in Montague Street.

Councillor Kevin Jenkins, Worthing Borough Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with the Worthing Lions Club to see the return of this fantastic fireworks festival.

“Young and old alike will be able to enjoy the epic fireworks display from the promenade, and every penny raised will go to worthy causes.”

Council officials said The Worthing Lions have been involved in numerous charitable and social activities throughout the year.

People are encouraged to make a donation either through Lions bucket collectors or directly to their shop in George V Avenue.

Organisers said all the profits raised will go towards local Lions good causes.

The fireworks display is free and will be set off at 7.30pm tonight from Worthing Pier to give people on the promenade the best view.

Officials said there will be no Tide of Light parade this year, but plans are in place to reintroduce the event one evening in 2019.
