LONDON WELCOMES IN 2020 WITH A BANG

LONDON WELCOMES IN 2020 WITH A BANG

Three barges, the iconic Big Ben and the incredible London Eye were all packed with pyrotechnics as midnight struck on 31st December, welcoming in the new decade in traditional style.

On what was probably one of the clearest night skies since September (we all recall how dreadful the weather was over the Bonfire Night season and beyond) it was set to be an outstanding night of pyrotechnics across the UK. However, despite the clear night, there had been a little shower earlier and it was very windy which added to the smoke issues.

They used the same ‘London is Open’ as for the Olympic 2012 event to welcome in the forthcoming EURO 2020 which the UK will be hosting. They even had some single shots spelling out the same. The finale was absolutely gorgeous.

Whilst it was lovely, you should check out the event at the Champs Elysee:

The use of lasers, coloured lighting and pyrotechnics were gorgeous and given the bad press about pollution, particularly following the Aussie PM’s decision to go ahead with the display in spite of a huge number of calls to cancel it. They decided that it should proceed thanks to the amount of investment and planning which had already taken place.

Well done to all the professional teams around the world who helped to ring in the New Decade.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE
