'Remember remember' not November for Llandudno fireworks but October!

This year’s show at North Shore beach will take place on Saturday, October 27, before British Summer Time has ended and several days prior to Halloween and Bonfire Night.

Llandudno Town Council said the date was considered the most “favourable”, being chosen for safety reasons and as it fitted in with the tides.
Later dates were deemed unsuitable, including November 10 which is the night before Remembrance Sunday.

Cllr Greg Robbins, chairman of the council’s fireworks sub-committee, said: "Believe me, a lot of work - months of worth - goes into this display.
“A firework display is not always on November 5, traditionally it is around that date.
“Looking at the tides, it can be a difficult act. We want to put on a spectacular show but safety is paramount.
“We were very close last year when the tides came in quicker than we thought.
“We have our new venue of the beach and a spectacular backdrop, but it is dependent on mother nature and the tides.”

Town councillor Frank Bradfield, former mayor of Llandudno,it was important to emphasis that the fireworks display - one of the largest in North Wales - was “nothing to do with Guy Fawkes”.

"“We are very sympathetic to the date being inconvenient in some cases, but it is all determined by the tides.”
Should it be bad weather on the Saturday, back-up dates of October 28 or October 29 have been scheduled."   ref Pioneer

Has the Extravaganza Twitter feed been hijacked by someone from Blackpool?

It would seem so.

If it's nothing to do with Guy Fawkes then why is it held so near Bonfire night?        ???

Must admit, in my opinion it would be better to just have one local display in Colwyn Bay for the traditional November date and to keep the money for a totally different fireworks event that might benefit local tourism even more, New Year,Extravaganza weekend or similar events to Armed Forces Day.
Might it fill more hotel rooms or maybe it does already with the November date?

Llandudno nightclub and sports bar Club 147 has closed.
The management at the nightspot off Upper Mostyn Street announced this afternoon that the venue was shutting.
They added that the club had now been sold, no details on new owner.   ref DP

It's been for sale for a long time and the price has been reduced several times. Think it was down to Ł300,000 the last time I looked.

The old furniture shop, Bryant & Hocknell  on Gloddaeth Street, is going to be developed into 16 flats for social housing.

Did that shop used to have a canopy outside on the corner ?

If so I remember sheltering under it one afternoon in  a blizzard waiting to catch a tram back to Penrhynside,probably 1956.
Happy days.

“FAST”,  Sorry couldn’t resist it.  Great success by all accounts, apart from an accident by two motorcycles during a display.    :'(
