The second day of Norwich’s Lord Mayor’s Celebrations has been brought to a close with a spectacular fireworks show from Norwich Castle.


After a busy day of events across the city, including the annual Lord Mayor’s procession between 5pm and 7pm, the city’s skies were lit up by the usual Saturday night display of the traditional weekend of celebrations.

Thousands of people were still in the city to watch the display, with many congregating in front of City Hall and lots of people interrupting nights out in bars and pubs to take to the streets and get a good view.

On what turned out to be a fairly clear night, there were reports of the fireworks being able to be seen from the outskirts of the city - as far out as Sprowston to the north and the Thickthorn junction of the A11 to the south - with the sound of the 20-minute display travelling even further.

It brought to a close a successful second day, which had seen the sun shine down on the Lord Mayor’s procession and the city’s people come together to enjoy the annual celebrations.
