The waterfront outlet centre has instead promised it has ‘exciting’ plans in the work for the festive season.

Once an annual event, Gunwharf Quays last held a November fireworks display in 2018.

In 2019, the shopping centre’s firework supplies were used as part of the D-Day 75 anniversary events.
