Half term certainly began with a bang!

Families were wowed by a colourful fireworks show on Wednesday night, which saw fireworks of all colours, shapes, sounds and sizes let off in Open in Norwich, a grade II listed building.

The explosive show, by internationally recognised pyrotechnician Matthew Tosh, marked the beginning of the Norwich Science Festival, which starts officially on Friday and runs until October 27.

The show demonstrated how science, technology, engineering and mathematics ensure that displays are both accurate and safe for the public.

Mr Tosh has previously worked behind the scenes of firework displays and live performances, and has always been fascinated by how they come together.
