Capping off a fantastic year for the City of London, this year’s New Year’s Eve event was destined to be nothing less than spectacular – and they didn’t disappoint.
Billed as one of the best in the World, the UK treated the revellers to a stunning display of fireworks.
The firers were once again Kimbolton Fireworks who were responsible for the brilliant displays at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympic Games 2012
The breaks on some of the shells were staggering and held the air beautifully with some astounding double breaks, the display was really something to see. Rockets flared from the London Eye and the capital’s riverside landmarks including barrages on the Thames were lit up in a display which lasted 11 minutes and featured 12,500 fireworks.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said, “Watched by hundreds of thousands in the capital and millions around the globe, London has proved, yet again, that it can pull off spectacular world-class events in style.”
Spectators on hand at the event were thrilled saying that the display superseded their expectations saying that it was the perfect ending to a magnificent year in London.
