The Bridge of Allan Bonfire Night and fireworks display that usually takes place in Strathallan Games Park has officially been cancelled due to Covid-19.

The bonfire night usually attracts thousands each year, celebrating the 40th anniversary in 2019 with a Queen tribute band.

The popular event is not only a seasonal highlight for many locals and students, but as a important fundraising event injecting much needed finances back into the local area.

Although bonfire night has been cancelled, members of Bridge of Allan Round Table who organise the yearly event have been keeping busy throughout the Covid-19 crisis.

Unless local safety restrictions drastically change, the group will still be going ahead with the Annual Christmas Tree sale in Bridge of Allan on December 12 2020. Further details of any upcoming events will be announced in the coming weeks.

The group have said, “Although the Fireworks aren’t taking place this year, we would be extremely grateful if anyone who wishes to donate, can visit our just giving page and donate whatever they can (”
