See in 2016 in style with fireworks in Barnstaple, set off from the Anchorwood Bank site.

There will be fireworks for New Year’s Eve in Barnstaple next week.

The celebrations on Thursday (Dec 31) will culminate in a midnight fireworks display to see in 2016.

Thanks to the support of Wessex Investors, Andrew Scott Ltd and North Devon Homes, the fireworks display will take place at midnight from the Anchorwood Bank site opposite the Strand.

Anchorwood’s project communications manager Lucie Brailsford said: “We will work closely with the display organisers and the Town Centre team to ensure safe access and hope it is a great success.”

Bideford will also be enjoying fireworks, as well as an ‘At the Movies’ themed afternoon and evening on the Quay.
