GUNWHARF Quays’ fireworks display is coming back with a bang this evening.

Free entertainment, music, and special offers will accompany the annual fireworks display.

The evening will include a live performance from indie pop band The Vamps.

Taking place along the waterfront, the event will also see entertainment from X Factor contestant Tom Mann. The fireworks display will kick off at 7.15pm and will wow spectators, illuminating the harbour and neighbouring Spinnaker Tower.

Sean Sweeney, centre manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: ‘We’ve got an amazing musical line-up to get the party started and the fireworks display over the iconic harbour will be one to remember.

‘The Fireworks Spectacular has grown bigger and better each year and 2013’s display promises to live up to that.’

Many of Gunwharf Quays’ shops will be offering extra discounts during a ‘flash’ sale between 7pm and 8pm.

Stores including Diesel, Tommy Hilfiger and Fred Perry will be offering up to 20 per cent off prices.

Entertainment will start at 6pm with shops open until 8pm.
