Plans are being put in place to stage a bumper fireworks extravaganza on the first night of the Clacton Airshow.

Clacton Pier and Tendring District Council (TDC) have joined forces again this year to stage the crowd puller on August 23.

It will take place following the show’s night flights display which is now into its third year.

Billy Ball, a director at the Pier, said that it will be much bigger and more spectacular than the fireworks arranged regularly on bank holidays during the year.

“The Pier and the Council are both putting significant amounts into the fireworks extravaganza which means that we have double our normal budget,” he said.

“Along with the Council we want to make sure that it will be a very special evening which will help keep both visitors and residents on the seafront after the day flights and provide them with some first rate entertainment.

“The night flight’s – which were first introduced by TDC three years ago – have gone from strength to strength and are now a major feature of the airshow.

“It is very important that the fireworks that follow match the standard of the remainder of the event.”

Mr Ball added that the airshow is the major event on the District’s calendar and the Pier is delighted to be involved in supporting it on August 23.

“So many businesses and traders benefit from the huge influx of people who visit Clacton for the show and we feel it is important to put something back,” he said.

“We are very fortunate to have such a large free event going on year after year and boosting the town’s economy.”

Clacton Airshow takes place on August 23 and 24 with the main site on the West Greensward.

The Pier is also staging one of its regular firework extravaganzas on Sunday August 26.
