Bumper Attendances for Daventry Town Fireworks and Remembrance Day

Posted: Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:35 by Daventry Town Council

This Saturday, more than 12,000 people attended Daventry Town Council's annual firework display, that's a whopping 3000 more than last year. It was fantastic to see so many different generations enjoying the event, singing along to the music and giving an excellent rendition of "Let it Go" from Frozen. Thank you to everyone who came and joined in the fun.

The Town Council would also like to thank everyone who braved the weather on Sunday to attend the Town's Remembrance Day Service. The Parade believed to be one of the Town's largest was a spectacular sight as young and old paraded through the Town centre, led by Liberty Drum Corps, to the War Memorial for the act of Remembrance, followed by a special service at Holy Cross Church.

For those of you who were unable to attend, an Armistice Day Service will be held at the Gazebo, Sheaf Street at 10:45am on Wednesday 11th November 2015. Please come and share the traditional two minutes' silence and short service.

And soon it will be Christmas, and Daventry Town Council hopes you will join in their next event, the Christmas Lantern Parade. A full schedule of the event will be announced shortly, in the meantime, save a date in your diary – Friday 4th December, come along and be part of the evening either as a spectator or participant to enjoy the festivities.
