Paled in comparison to previous years, there were long gaps between fireworks and the space was taken up with a projector as opposed to fireworks.

Previously there have been amazing ends to the night with massive fireworks lighting up the sky, this year left people asking "is that it?".

I've always made sure to go to this display in previous years but next time I'll go elsewhere, it's not even a cost thing, the display was just not very good. 


At £6 entrance I rather expected more than a late start and only 25 minutes of rather less than spectacular fireworks. In previous years the displays have been tremendous so I was rather disappointed that this yer's were not so magnificent. We were promised spectacular music from stage and screen. Ok, so there was Star Wars and the James Bond theme, but how in any way can Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, I Know Him So Well or The Lonely Goatherd be considered "dramatic". Yes, I am aware that there were a lots of young children there, but far too young to know these songs. Young children also love the big sounds of blockbuster movies which would have added so much more to the atmosphere. The music programme seemed to have no logical order, no logical connection between the tracks. Almost as if someone had randomly googled for "songs from stage and screen" and just thrown the first dozen or so together, Very disappointing.
