|What a weekend!|
The location for this humungous show was Hatfield House - a large stately home which is currently celebrating its 400 year anniversary. Without fireworks, it looks like this:

But on Saturday, it was covered in firers! There was a team behind the house setting up shells, a team on the roof, and a team in the formal gardens at the front (I was in that team :) ). There were thousands of fireworks and an impressive plan of where to place and angle them. And, of course, we had to be incredibly careful of our surroundings - it's not really on to leave holes in the grounds of such a grand setting!
I'll skip over some of the details, and get to the important part - it was a truely fantastic show (which is fitting for a company called Fantastic Fireworks!).
I was thrilled to be part of it. There was a professional video crew filming the event, but for now here's some youtube videos of it.
