Inverclyde’s annual fireworks display in 2019 will have a science theme to mark the achievements of local inventor James Watt.

The display will take place on November 2 at Battery Park, Greenock. Fairground rides will be operational from 5.30 p.m. with the fireworks starting at 7 p.m.

A post on Inverclyde Council’s website says: “Wrap up warm and come along to this family-friendly event. Please remember not to bring any sparklers or other fireworks onto the park.”

The Council and partners have been supporting a range of events in 2019 to mark the 200th anniversary of the death of Greenock-born Watt.

The Council website says: “Following a year of celebrations marking the bicentenary of James Watt’s death, our annual display will have a science theme.

“Greenock born James Watt was an inventor, chemist and keen astronomer whose inventions changed the world.”
