The fireworks display starts when it gets darks, about 9pm.

Lights Over Marlborough is a major fundraiser for Whitney Street School organised by the school’s Parent Support Group.

The event first started with a small crowd on the Whitney Street School grounds more than 35 years ago. Organisers are pleased to be bringing bring back this fun, reasonably priced family event to our community after the event had to be cancelled in 2021 due to the Covid 19 alert levels. They are hoping for a repeat of the success of 2020 when a huge crowd of more than 5000 gathered on a mild calm night for an amazing show that thrilled on-lookers.

Buy tickets at the gate on the night. Prices are $8 per person or $35 for a family pass of up to two adults and three children, under five-year-olds free.

The postponement date in case of bad weather is November 13.
