With much regret Brunel has taken the decision to cancel tomorrow evening’s Fireworks Night event (Tuesday 5 November) because of the weather conditions being forecast. We have been told by the display company that heavy winds expected tomorrow would pose an unacceptable risk of injury to a large crowd.
The safety of our guests is of paramount importance to us and we will be fully refunding everyone who has bought a ticket via our Eventbrite booking system or directly if tickets were bought on campus. This has been an incredibly hard decision to take and we apologise to everyone who was looking forward to this year’s event. 

Advice from the contractors who run the display on our behalf is to cancel the event. They look at different weather forecasts – looking at wind speed at height and not the weather on the ground. The forecasts predict winds will be 29 miles per hour between 400- 600 feet up in the air, which is the height at which fireworks explode and beyond the maximum safe wind speed. Again, we are very sorry for any inconvenience caused.
