Doing battle in the skies
9:10am Friday 7th September 2012 in News
AN explosive evening was enjoyed at Eastnor Castle as some of the country’s top fireworks companies lit up the night sky.
Thousands of visitors made the most of a balmy afternoon on Saturday to enjoy picnics in the castle grounds, before darkness fell and the fourth Fireworks Champions event began.
Three contenders each put on 10-minute displays set to music, with the Redditch-based Shockwave Pyrotechnics declared the winner after a text vote by members of the audience.
There was then a spectacular closing display put on by event organiser MLE Pyrotechnics. Tamara Lawrence, MLE’s administration manager, declared the event a big success. “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and it was definitely the best event so far,” she said.
