A Falkirk Community Trust spokesperson said: “Please wrap up warmly. Food vans will be present and the Callendar Park Kiosk will be open, with a Changing Places toilet situated in front of Callendar House.

“Let’s keep Falkirk the safest area in Scotland again this Bonfire Night.”

Traffic restrictions will be in force for the fireworks spectacular, along with a number of key safety measures.

Callendar Road will be closed to all traffic from 6pm to 9pm, leading to restricted access to Moncks Road and Oliver Road. There will be a one way system in operation at Kemper Avenue, which will be accessed only via Arnott Street.

Meanwhile police will enforce a no alcohol policy at the display, and nobody will be allowed to light sparklers.

People attending are advised to wear suitable closing, including sturdy footwear, and to take a torch.

They are also asked to take instructions from both the police and stewards at the event.
