A night of light at Cambridge fireworks display
Bonfire Night went with a bang at Midsummer Common in Cambridge as around 20,000 people descended on the site to watch the city’s spectacular fireworks event last night (Tuesday, November 5).
Spectators cheered the magnificent display as rockets transformed the night sky into an explosion of colour.
And even the rain couldn’t stop the fun as plenty of families stayed to enjoy the fairground rides, food stalls and commentary from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Jeremy Sallis.
Provided by Cambridge City Council, the annual event is one of the largest free displays around.
Attendees described the fireworks display as “magical” “wonderful” and a “breathtaking kaleidoscope of colour”.
The fireworks started at 7pm and the bonfire was lits afterwards.
The design of this year’s display was once again provided by Pains Fireworks, which has been staging displays for nearly 200 years.
