WOOLACOMBE'S annual firework display promises to be bigger, better and more spectacular than ever.

The popular Fireworks on the Fields event is now in its fourth year, and organisers hope to create another magical evening on November 5.

The village's Family Playdays team is encouraging people to gather at the Red Barn pub for 6pm to join in a torch-lit procession to the Meadow Playing Fields, accompanied by the sounds of drumming group and carnival favourites, Humdrumconundrum.

Once at the Meadow, people will be able to enjoy a variety of fairly priced and delicious hot food and mulled wine against the backdrop of a giant bonfire and live band. A spectacular firework display, managed by village resident Greg Webb and his team of volunteers, will end the night in style.

Last year an estimated 2,000 people enjoyed the event and organisers are aiming for a similarly successful night.

Playdays chairman Mel Walker said: "While we've increased the budget for fireworks to create an even better display, we haven't changed the admission price from last year as we appreciate times are hard for some.

Tickets are priced at �3 each or �10 per family and are available from Shirley's Newsagents and Londis in Woolacombe, and from the Mortehoe Village Stores. Tickets can also be bought on the night from The Red Barn.

Proceeds will go towards future Playdays community events and activities and various other charities.
