(ANSA) – LONDON, 12 OTT – The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced that there will be no fireworks in the streets on the occasion of the New Year for reasons of caution linked to the Covid-19 emergency.
The show, canceled for the second year in a row, is traditionally held on the Thames and attracts crowds of spectators and onlookers, but it will not be held despite the general reopening of all activities and the substantial end of every restriction decreed in the Kingdom. United since the middle of July.
“Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, our world-famous New Year’s Eve spectacle will not take place this year on the banks of the Thames,” the mayor’s office reported today.
However, “other options” are being studied to celebrate the advent of 2022 in London in public “in a spectacular way,” the official said.
Options that, according to the tabloid Sun, include the project of a live music concert in Trafalgar Square, between midnight and 1 a.m., which should be open to a limited number of spectators of no more than 10,000. (ANSA).
