After some technical fun and games we now have the 2016 video! See below and enjoy
Thank you to everyone who braved the chill in the air to come and see us at Club Langley last night. Fantastic show and hope you all enjoyed it very much! We have some photos from the display below thanks to Kevin Sealy with video to follow. Please tell your friends and family what a great night you had and many thanks to all of our supporters and helpers – we could not do it without your hard work. Particular thanks to Club Langley for hosting us and to Coady Phillips as our sponsors. Look forward to seeing you in 2017!
So. It took a little while to get done, but here we have it. The video footage from the 2015 display! Some great footage from the camera at the front of the display as well as some drone footage interwoven in. Many thanks to Steve Sangster for the drone shots – you can see more of his work on Twitter @SteveSangster
Enjoy the video!
Last night was awesome. The rain had stopped. The skies had cleared. The wind had died down a bit. It was almost warm.
Thank you to the approximately 4,000 people who came to the display last night. And an equally big thank you to those who organised, ran the food and novelties stall, served the drinks, sold the tickets and marshalled the lines. It all makes the event one of the best in the area – with great music and superb fireworks. Photos and video footage to follow later as we sort everything out. See you next year!
Loaded on the van for tomorrow by Knights of Fire Fireworks. 3″, 4″ and 5″ shells, huge roman candles, big cakes and a great music soundtrack featuring Adele, John Newman, Arctic Monkeys, Madonna and Royal Blood. #excited
Check out the Tickets page for pricing and where to buy them and have a good look at the Photos and Videos page to see what to expect! Don’t forget you can get BBQ food and hot and cold drinks. Gates open at 6pm and the display starts at 7pm. Fingers, toes and all sorts of other things crossed for the weather!

Photographer Chris Weedon returned to the fields of Langley Park School for Girls for the third year running and has yet again produced a stunning array of photographs from the display. You can see his 2012 and 2013 work here and here respectively.
The damp conditions have added a certain ethereal quality to his work and we think that they are superb.
Thank you to everyone who came to the display last night. Despite the appalling weather during the day, (described by someone as ‘a little damp’) there was a moment when it didn’t rain just before seven and we had a great crowd on the field who really appreciated the 20th anniversary show.
We will put up photos and videos over the next few days / weeks as we pull the different pieces together. In the meantime, thank you to everyone from the Rotary Club of West Wickham and surrounding clubs who support the event, everyone from Langley Park School for Girls PSA, and the school itself. And finally, but not least, everyone who bought a ticket and came to see the show. Already looking forward to the 2015 display.
