Find out about the annual Blackheath Fireworks display.

Blackheath Fireworks 2022

Unfortunately, as a result of funding cuts from central government, the Blackheath Fireworks display will not be taking place in 2022.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the display was funded almost exclusively by Lewisham Council, supported by fundraising efforts from local residents and businesses, following other partners and neighbouring local authorities withdrawing funding.

While we have endeavoured to continue organising the display, it is not currently possible given the financial pressures facing the Council. After more than a decade of continued funding cuts from central government, we need to focus our limited financial resources on maintaining essential local services and supporting our most vulnerable residents.

We will continue exploring possible options for future displays and remain open to offers of sponsorship and external funding.
