Meanwhile Center Parcs has confirmed that there will be no fireworks displays this year at all sites – including Sherwood Forest - in a bid to protect wildlife and the environment.

The fireworks displays, which are usually a large part of the festive celebrations at their parks will no longer take place, with an ‘Enchanted Light Trail’ hoping to bring some festive magic to holidaymakers instead.

The park will transform into a Winter Wonderland from November 8 until Christmas with snow, lights and festive decorations, and guests can take a stroll through Santa’s Woodland Village, however their popular fireworks displays will no longer be part of the festivities.

The company has opted to cancel the displays to protect the environment and reduce stress on wildlife, which they announced in a statement on their website earlier this week.

One of the largest fireworks displays in Nottinghamshire has also been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.

The Forest Recreation Ground event generally attracts about 40,000 people.
