COCKENZIE and Port Seton’s fireworks display is set to go off with a bang. . . at least later in the evening!

The community will host a ‘partially quiet’ fireworks display after initially investigating the possibility of ‘silent fireworks’.

Graeme Jeffrey, Cockenzie and Port Seton Community Council chairman, said: “You can’t actually get silent fireworks so we’re starting it off with quiet fireworks then building up to the loud bangs. There will be a massive finale.

“We’re trying to accommodate everybody. People expect bangs at firework displays but we want to accommodate people with dogs and anyone with autism.”

This will be the first fireworks display in the village since 2016 after administrative issues led to no event last year.

Mr Jeffrey added: “Only the latter part will be loud. We are trying to cover all angles.”

The display takes place at the Links on Sunday, November 4 at 7.30pm, and a large crowd is expected.

Mr Jeffrey said: “Because Meadowbank [stadium which used to host a display] is shut, City of Edinburgh Council reckon more people will be going to more local displays.”
