The fireworks company behind the spectacular New Year show 2011 off the London Eye will light the fuse at Norwich’s very own Sparks in the Park in Earlham Park on Saturday, November 5.
Kimbolton Fireworks will be in charge of the two firework displays - 6.30pm children’s fireworks and the Big Bang at 8pm - and other events will include burning Guy Fawkes, a funfair and the Heart soundstage.
Organised by Norwich City Council’s events team, the night is supported by the Evening News.
Helen Selleck, the council’s events manager, said: “The Big Bang Fireworks will be exactly that - a really fantastic display to wow the crowds. But so the little ones aren’t left out, we’ve got a less noisy, but no less colourful, display earlier on, so there is something for everyone.”
Extra park and ride and city bus services will be provided to and from the event and tickets are available in advance from Norwich Tourist Information Centre at The Forum. For a full report and pictures fdrom the event see Monday’s Evening News.
As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
