Having a blast at SHRT Bonfire and Fireworks Display

ON 4 November 2017, in a cold Victoria Park, Southport, the Southport and Hesketh Round Table held its annual charity Bonfire and Fireworks Display. Despite the wind and damp air, after a slow start, crowds built up as the biggest bonfire they have ever made was prepared for lighting. On the bonfire was the traditional Guy, and hidden inside the large stack of wood was the ignition system, which 2 local School children detonated, sparking the fire into life. Live music started from a small stage provided by Sefton Council and the fire soon warmed up the field. For those attending, the park hosted many things to do that night, with vintage fire engines on display, bouncy castles, an inflatable slide, plus a fantastic fairground, thanks to Silcock's Amusements. MD Travel were also providing Limo Rides... For the VIP ticket holders, a large tent was erected, housing a few surprises, 1 of them was the fact that Channel 4 was attending, filming a large cake, specially made for the event by Rosie Cake Diva. You will be able to see it on an episode of Channel 4's "Extreme Cakes" very soon. More to follow on that... Then came the fireworks... This year's display was 1 of the best yet, lighting up the sky for a 15 minute long show. At the end, within 5 minutes the weather turned and hail and rain drove the crowds away.
