There may be no pyrotechnics on Blackheath next month, but fireworks fans in Charlton will be able to get their fix soon without going too far from home.

According to a notice issued by the Port of London Authority, there is due to be a fireworks display off the Greenwich Peninsula from 8.30pm on Saturday 17 October. It will take place between the O2 and Trinity Buoy Wharf.

It’s not clear what the five-minute display is for, but you’re unlikely to miss them in Charlton, and they should liven up what’s currently forecast to be a damp Saturday night.
