Fireworks will light up the sky over Falmouth for the grand finale of Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week again this year. Spectators flock to admire the spectacle which has become an integral part of the regatta week, thanks to generous sponsorship.

All three are local companies based in Falmouth Docks. The pyrotechnic extravaganza will begin at 10pm on Friday 13th August, with viewing points throughout the town and harbour front.

‘I am delighted that A&P Falmouth, Pendennis Shipyard and Falmouth Petroleum Limited have agreed to sponsor the firework display for Henri Lloyd Falmouth Week. This will take place on Friday (weather permitting) and will be carried out by Falmouth Firework Company.’ commented Richard Gates, Falmouth Town Manager and Chair of the Shore-side Committee ‘We would like to thank these sponsors for their continued support. This is one of the highlights of what promises to be a very exciting week.’

Peter Child, Managing Director of A&P Falmouth said “We are particularly delighted to be able to offer continued support for the finale fireworks in 2010, the 150th Anniversary of Falmouth Docks, and hope that everyone will enjoy the spectacle.
