Portsmouth fireworks: display planned to mark Brittany Ferries’ Salamanca departure from the port on Sunday evening

The five-minute display is due to take place around 9 p.m. and will depart from the Uncle Bill barge near Flathouse Quay in the harbour.

A notice from the Queen’s Harbor Master says an exclusion zone will be in place between 8pm and 9.30pm, in which no unauthorized vessels are to pass, between No 3 Berth Dolphin and Fountain Lake Jetty.

The advisory goes on to say, “Seafarers are advised to stay away from this activity and be aware of the impact of pyrotechnics on their night vision and hearing. A security broadcast will be made by QHM before and at the end of the event. Ferry movements will take place during and immediately after the fireworks.
