Due to continuing wet weather and forecasts for more to come, this weekend’s Firelight to be held in Singleton Town Centre on Saturday 4 May 2024 from 5.30 – 9.30pm has been cancelled.

The decision to cancel was made after significant consideration and in keeping with Singleton Council’s number one priority to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community.

A number of performers and vendors had also raised concerns about the weather.

Mayor of Singleton, Cr Sue Moore said it was a disappointing decision, but the safety of the thousands of attendees came first.

“Firelight is one of our most popular community events, and there’s been so much work and planning gone into making this year yet another success,” she said.

“But the inclement weather conditions, and forecast for more, means that we’re left with no other option than to cancel in the interests of keeping everyone safe.

“Having said that, it doesn’t make this decision any less agonising.

“We sincerely apologise for the disappointment this will cause and appreciate your understanding.”
