Win the chance to start Blackheath Fireworks on Saturday 2 November

After Greenwich Council realised it could free-ride on the Blackheath firework display and save its cash to splurge on regal backslapping, Lewisham Council sought innovative ways to fund the event. The Council writes:

For the first time, Lewisham Council is inviting residents to enter a prize draw with a first prize of ‘pressing the plunger’ to start Blackheath fireworks, the biggest free fireworks display in the capital.

For only £5 per entry, the lucky winner, along with five friends, will also receive a guided tour of the firing zone and an optimum viewing position within the firing zone. Fifteen runners up will be given five passes to the VIP viewing area which offers a spectacular view of the display right next to the firing zone.

As well as the display which starts at 8pm, there will be a funfair on Blackheath from 4pm and food and refreshments available from 5pm. Blackheath welcomes almost 100,000 visitors to its display - the biggest, free fireworks event in the capital.

L&Q Housing is one of Blackheath Fireworks main supporters this year whilst other local businesses are also being offered the opportunity to support the fireworks with a range of different sponsorship opportunities and premium viewing packages.

For details of the prize draw and how to enter, go to www.lewisham.gov.uk/startthefireworks

Entries close at 12 noon on Friday 28 October 2013.
