LONDON FIREWORKS 2018 – NEW YEAR’S EVE FIREWORKS

London Fireworks 2018 - New Year's Eve Fireworks

Big Ben rang out for the last time in 2017 as it welcomed in another New Year.

The fireworks were the responsibility of Titanium Fireworks who have been in control of the London NYE pyrotechnics for a number of years now. On what was a challenging site to fire from and weather that would have tested the most hardy of technicians, they did at least get no dark sky moments but it did look as if the high winds had affected the choices made for the finale as it was not as big as we usually see. The lasers were lovely but they did make some of the sections appear to be even smokier than perhaps they might have been.

As the clock struck 12, all the revellers in and around London were waiting with bated breath to see the fireworks. The theme was all about celebrating women and the live performances leading up to the fireworks were by some of the biggest female names in the music industry, but the actual tracks used for the fireworks were almost all male?

All in all, better than the rest of the World (as usual).

Since it’s installation in 1859, this is the 158th year the bell, housed in the Elizabeth Tower has been rung to celebrate the arrival of another New Year but this is only the second time since August the bell has been heard whilst it is out of commission for essential repairs both to the Great Westminster Clock face and the tower housing the bells. This is to make it more accessible (putting in lifts) and maintain it for future generations.

The work is set to take around 4 years but the cost has already risen massively from the original cost of around £29 million to now £61 million. The bells will remain silent now (providing there are no major national events) until Remembrance Sunday 2018.

We would like to wish all our customers a very happy and prosperous New Year 2018 and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
