Councillor Steve Brunt, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centres and visitor economy, said: “Each year, thousands of people come along to our spectacular fireworks event and I’m sure this year will be no exception.

“We’re also grateful to Chesterfield FC for giving visitors to the event to park for free at the Proact Stadium.
