THE Green and Whites have partnered up with the
Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service to kick-off this year's
Bonfire safety campaign.
PLAY IT SAFE: Crane
show how easy it is to put out a fire when you are prepared.
Nottingham Rugby's mascot, Archie the Stag, hopes the club's
Fireworks Party goes off with a bang on November 4.
But the combination of explosive rugby and pyrotechnics is no
excuse to ignore safety.
With the club's post-match fireworks display taking place inside
Meadow Lane Stadium, the utmost is being done to maximise fun while
minimising the danger with a professional fireworks team putting on
With a multitude of organised and social events happening across
Nottinghamshire over the Halloween and Bonfire Night period, the
message is aimed at all those people who will be handling anything
and everything from sparklers to fireworks.
Just as players go out of their way to protect themselves from
injury with head gear and mouth guards, Nottingham player Rhys
Crane said fun should never come at the price of un-necessary
"This time of year is a fantastic thrill and a feast for the
eyes and ears, but it is also one that demands the utmost
diligence," said Crane.
"Organised events pack the most enjoyment and take all the
stress out of it, so we at Nottingham Rugby are hugely proud to put
on a Sunday afternoon show here in the city."
Tickets for an entire afternoon of explosive action, including
Nottingham's RFU Championship match (3pm kick-off) and fireworks
start at £12 for adults. Children tickets are on sale from £1.
And if you just want to watch the post-match fireworks show in
the all-seater stadium, you can purchase adult tickets for £5.
Gates will re-open for fireworks revelers at 4.15pm with the show
