So far, we have managed to keep the Fireball Ceremony a free event. How long this continues we don't know and can't guess. Each year the rules, regulations, Health & Safety requirements, etc., change and inevitably there are added costs. Sponsorship and support from local organisations and businesses has helped us enormously over the years but there is a limit to what we can finance. So you don't need tickets, you don't have to book a place, just turn up and enjoy!
-----------------------------!! HOWEVER !! -----------------------
Each year we ask for financial support from the spectators on the night in the form of a donation. So far the response has always been amazing, generating thousands of pounds to help run the event. It also gives spectators a chance to meet some of the swingers before the event as the swingers will be shaking the buckets. It can also be an opportunity to ask about the ceremony etc.
All our volunteers are greatly appreciated by both the committee and the swingers, as, without them giving up their spare time at Hogmanay the event couldn't go ahead.
