Plymouth was illuminated for the evening.
Monday the 5th of November 2012 brought a spectacular firework display to Plymouth Hoe front.
Bracing the cold, and wrapped in my scarf and gloves, I headed up only to be gifted with a bad cough today. It was definitely worth it however, with the display starting at 8pm and lasting fifteen minutes. Music blasted through the crowd, with classics from James Bond and much to my enjoyment, the very popular "Gangnam Style". Rum was a much welcome added extra, and you could pick up warm food/coffee or even a pint in the local stalls around the venue.
The fireworks flew and danced to the music, which was an amazing touch. The crowed "oo'd" and "ahh'd" at a perfect display, with a great turn out of the night. A company from Surrey called Pyrovision was responsible for such an amazing stage show, with music from Stage Electrics.
With the bonfire near by, it was soothing to watch with the brilliant Plymouth Sound in the background. If you were feeling adventurous, there was a chance to try out one of the many rides that would tip you backwards, forwards and upside down!
All in all, it was a great evening and I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the cold breeze. Before the awesome fireworks, the crowd which flocked in its hundred were treated with music from a Lady Gaga tribute artist (Sam Chapman), Felicity Dukes, Plymouth street dance Beat-Breakers and duo Natalie and Cotty. Sam Chapman sounded spookily similar to the real and wonderful Lady Gaga!
