Lacey55's review of Wandsworth Council Fireworks Display, Battersea Park, London

★☆☆☆☆

“Severe overcrowding”

Written on: 09/11/2015 by Lacey55 (1 review written)

The display was good (once it started), but got very freaked out by how many people were there. Very Very very overcrowded. Petrified I was going to lose my two young grandchildren. Lots of groups of adults there with no kids, all mainly drinking and out to have a good time............. but had no concept of the idea that families were around them (Swearing, standing in front of very small children, sometimes even falling over them). By 8.10 there were still crowds of people coming in. I am not sure if this was why there was a delay but do feel that If they had of started the Fireworks on time, I think it would of caused of surge with the hoards of people still coming in as they would of been worried about missing some of it. The worst part was trying to get out as it felt it was like survival of the fittest, with the fittest being people with no children, buggies or wheelchairs (not sure how health and safety standards were met here, as it was quite scary at one point when we were all being squashed together to get through one part where it became quite narrow. As stated earlier, the firework display although short, was fantastic, but very much spoiled by severe overcrowding and people drinking (bottles of broken glass on one part of the pathway while we were trying to get out) and unless this aspect of the event is seriously looked into, I doubt I will go again as I think it is an accident waiting to happen.
