We don’t remember 1976 as the year Harold Wilson resigned as Prime Minister. We don’t remember 1976 as the year Apple Computers was formed by Steve Jobs. We don’t even remember 1976 as the year Agatha Christie died.
We do however remember it as the year the first ever Hereford Fireworks Display was started by the Hereford Round Table.
This year celebrates 40 years since the first fireworks display in the County was held at Hereford Racecourse by the Hereford Round Table. All those years ago a brilliant chaos ensued as the city was gridlocked with people wanting to get a slice of the action at the Racecourse from all over Herefordshire. Heads gazed up into the sky to enjoy the brilliant fireworks entertainment at the most talked about event in the County of that year.
Fast forward forty years and the Hereford Round Table fireworks display is still as popular as it was back then. This year was the biggest and best event in Hereford fireworks history!
