Daventry Fireworks Display 2020

2019 Gallery

On Saturday 2nd November 2019, Daventry Town Council held its ninth annual Fireworks Display at Parker E-Act School where thousands people attended.

Gates opened at 6pm where there was a wide range of food and drinks stalls waiting to feed the masses. Starting at 7.30pm, the display was orchestrated and choreographed by local fireworks company, MLE Pyrotechnics. There was superhero theme this year with tunes from Superman, Star wars and The Avengers, along with a mix of sounds across the decades including Queen, Robbie Williams, Bruno Mars, LMFAO and Sam Fields. The feedback from the crowd was that it was one of the best fireworks display to date.

The event was a huge success and we are thrilled that so many individuals and families could enjoy this wonderful event put on by Daventry Town Council.

A huge thank you to all of our partners who helped make the event entertaining and safe: Calvin Hanks our Health & Safety consultant; sound and lighting were provided by Juice Sound and Lighting; stewarding provided by Northamptonshire based company New Age Training and Recruitment; CCTV provided by local Daventry company Crimesecure Ltd; medical aid was provided by Enhanced Medical Care; Parker E-Act School for allowing us to host the event on their grounds again this year.
