April Showers – Grand Pier style

Friday 28th February

The sky above Weston-super-Mare will be showered with spectacular sparkles in April as the resort’s Grand Pier hosts another of its breath-taking Fireworks At Sea events.

Tickets are on sale now for the event which takes place on Saturday, April 4, which will ensure the start of the Easter school holidays will truly go with a bang.

Fireworks At Sea runs between 6.30pm (6pm for platinum ticket holders) and 9.30pm, with all ticket holders being entitled to entry to the Pier and unlimited rides.

They will also have the best vantage point from which to view the amazing fireworks show, which is due to start at 8.30pm (subject to weather conditions).

Standard tickets cost £9.50, but if you want to add a hot meal from the Boardwalk Café – including traditional fish and chips – you can buy a Gold Ticket for £15.

There are also some Platinum VIP tickets, for £27.50, which include priority entry at 6pm, half-an-hour earlier than other ticket holders, entry, unlimited rides plus a three-course meal in Tiffany’s Restaurant and a private balcony area which offers the very best view of the fireworks.

Tim Moyle, Director at the Grand Pier, said: “The Easter holidays traditionally mark the start of the holiday season in Weston, so we thought this would be the perfect time to stage another of our spectacular shows.

“We know, from feedback we receive, that our fireworks displays are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

“Our various tickets mean there are options for the whole family to enjoy a fun-filled evening out, ending with a fabulous fireworks finale."
