Big Beach Bang 2016



Announcement from the Big Beach Bang Committee

We are very sorry to announce that following advice from the fireworks firing team, the wind is too strong to fire the fireworks and to guarantee the safety of all of our attendees.

We have worked hard to pull this event together so that we can continue to share the funds with groups across our community. We are so disappointed that the weather has played a part in us being unable to have our normal brilliant event, as I am sure you are too.

We wanted to let you know as soon as possible so that you can make alternate plan, and we also know that you may have a few questions - we have a lot to do, - we will get to these as quickly as we can, but please be patient if we don't answer that quickly - we promise that we'll answer everything as quickly as we can.

We are part of the round table family and Basildon Round Table have agreed to accept any Big Beach Bang tickets at their display tommorow night- We will post their event details here soon- Also, there is a display at Belchamps, in Hockley and they have kindly agreed to take our tickets already paid for or bought online. Please take your tickets and onlne order.

We will have Southend Roundable representatives at these events to assist.

If you would like a refund then please read follow the information below.

If you purchased your ticket from one of our shops/outlets then please take the tickets back to the place you purchased them from for a refund. If you Purchased these online from our website, then we will issue information on how to get a refund as soon as we can- Please bear with us.

Please can you share this post with family and friends who were planning to attend.

Thanks of your understanding.

The Big Beach Bang Committee

Thank you for your support

In 2018 the Big Beach Bang raised in excess of £10,000 for local charities - thank you for supporting this community event!

Enjoy a spectacular fireworks display whilst bringing not only your family together but the whole community together. Thousands came along last year and we hope that thousands will come along this year. You can help us reclaim that community feeling by being part of an event that really gives back to your local area.

Unlike many big national charities 100% of the proceeds from the Big Beach Bang go to local charities; this is because the whole event depends solely on the hard work of volunteers. Every single penny goes back into your community. In the past we have helped Havens Hospices, Essex Air Ambulance, Southend Blind Welfare Organisation, Harp and many more.

Our volunteers work tirelessly for over 10 months planning and organising to ensure that everything runs smoothly on the night. This year, we worked closely with Havens, who, in turn, were the chosen charity for Olympus who matched both the volunteers and money that Havens generate for this event and all other activities for the year. We were delighted to be working with them.

What is the Big Beach Bang

The Big Beach Bang is the premier fireworks event in the area, where all the proceeds go to charity. Held at Shoebury East Beach where every year thousands of spectators attend a great for an evening of fun and entertainment.

The annual fireworks spectacular that has a great DJ and a thrilling Fun Fair plus much, much more, so come and see thousands of pounds worth of fireworks set off into the night sky over the beach.

The event is organised on a voluntary basis by the members of Southend Round Table 106 and is one of their major fundraising events. It takes over ten months of hard work and planning to organise and its success can be attributed to many years of experience dating back to our earliest displays at Southend United’s Roots Hall Football Ground in the 1970’s.
