City sky lit up with firework display

More than 5,000 people turned up at the event which lit up the city sky last night.

The event at Earlham Park, part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, saw more than 1,200 fireworks exploding across the Norwich skyline in a 40-minute show.

Festival organisers today confirmed that an audience of more than 5,000 people gathered in Norwich's Earlham Park to witness the Bombs per Minute event performed by French pyrotechnic company, Les Commandos Percu.

Last night's show was performed by a troupe of 'fireworkers' who conducted an orchestra of choreographed fireworks to create a blazing tapestry in the city's skies.

Jonathan Holloway, festival artistic director, said: “The atmosphere last night was electrifying. The combination of spectacular showmanship and a thoroughly energised audience was thrilling. It's fantastic that companies of this quality are now such a regular feature of the festival's programme.”

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival continues until May 16 with classical music, jazz, theatre, dance, and an expanded children's programme. For more information call 01603 766400 or visit www.nnfestival.org.uk
