Fireworks in Greenwich – Sunday 5th February

Greenwich Council is holding a weekend of events to celebrate becoming a Royal Borough, kicking off on Friday 3rd February in Woolwich, in Eltham on Saturday 4th Feb, and a finale in Greenwich on Sunday 5th.

On the Sunday there will be free entertainment and children's art workshops in and around Greenwich Market and the Maritime Museum from 10am – 5.30pm, and the document confirming the borough's royal status will be on show at the Discover Greenwich visitor centre.

From 2-6pm there'll be live music on Pepys Lawn in front of the Old Royal Naval College, and the day culminates in a costumed parade with local schools and community groups walking from College Approach arriving at Pepys Lawn just before six, when there'll be a "stunning music and fireworks" finale on the lawn, ending at 6.15pm.

Thanks to Ian Visits for the tip-off. See the Greenwich Council website.
