Scottish Love in Action (SLA), the charity helping destitute children in India, hosts two Guy Fawkes fireworks extravaganzas on Sunday the 5th November at George Watson's Rugby Ground at Myreside Road, Edinburgh.

2017 also sees the return of a third fireworks event that was introduced last year, dubbed the Green Show, on Friday 3rd November at George Heriot’s Playing Fields at Inverleith Row, Goldenacre, Edinburgh.

Times for the two fireworks displays are:

  • [SOLD OUT] Blue Show – Gates open 4pm – Entertainment starts 4.30pm (ends 5.15pm)
  • [SOLD OUT] Red Show – Gates open 6.30pm – Entertainment starts 7pm (ends 7.45pm)

The Programme

As well as the headline attraction - the fireworks display by Pyromancer Fireworks - there will be pipe Bands, Dance Ihayami, and Delighters Fire Circus Theatre. The event will be compered by Malcolm Reid and Dougie Robertson.

There will also be hot food, drinks and Halloween tuck provided by various caterers.

Proceeds from the Fireworks Extravaganza will go to SLA, which provides funding to a grass roots non-governmental organisation (NGO) to run projects in the south-east Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, caring for over 500 once destitute and vulnerable children in a Home and School in Tuni.

SLA’s Founder and Chairperson, Gillie Davidson, explains: ““Some of the destitute children we care for have only managed to survive by scavenging in rubbish tips, or begging in the streets where they are open to exploitation. The money we raise from events like the Fireworks Extravaganza gives these children an education and thus a chance in life and we’d like to thank everyone for this support.””

Tickets

£7.50 for a single ticket (under 2’s free). Various family ticket prices including £28 for a family ticket (2 adults, 2 children aged 2-18).
