The skies over Daventry were alight with colour on Saturday (05 November 2022) night with Daventry Town Council's annual Fireworks Spectacular Display.

Starting at 7.30pm, the display was orchestrated and choreographed by local award-winning fireworks company, MLE Pyrotechnics. This year's display was set to a soundtrack of nostalgic 80's music songs, opening with the Stranger Things remix of the Kate Bush classic on 'Running Up That Hill' and closing with the Guns & Roses tune; 'Paradise City' as featured in the latest Marvel Film. The popular fireworks event was hailed a success by visitors who were quick to flood onto social media to praise the show and share their pictures soon afterwards.

Also joining us on the night were a variety of food and drink vendors serving a wide range of yummy hot savoury food and drinks, plus autumnal sweet treats including hot doughnuts, candy floss, retro sweets, and cakes. The retailers reported a successful night of trading and were pleased to welcome new and returning customers.

Cllr. Malcolm Ogle, Mayor of Daventry was in attendance and said: It's great for Daventry's Fireworks display to return with a bang - lots of them! The display is a chance for local families to enjoy high quality outdoor entertainment for free and it's great to see so many smiles on visitor's faces as they take in the impressive fireworks. The event is one I've attended for several years with my family and it's brilliant it is still as popular as ever."

Sound and lighting were provided by Juice Sound and Lighting; Calvin Hanks was the Health & Safety Consultant; stewarding provided by Northamptonshire based company New Age Training and Recruitment; CCTV provided by local Daventry company Crimesecure Ltd; medical aid by RAMSS Medical and our wonderful Compere Peter Wylie.

A huge thank you to the E-Act Parker School for helping facilitate the event and ensuring that everyone had a fantastic evening.

Daventry Town Council was delighted to host such a well-received event and thank visitors for their complementary feedback post display.
