Blackheath Fireworks - up to 100,000 attend
UP TO 100,000 people attended the Blackheath fireworks display this year - continuing the success of one of the biggest bonfire nights in London.
Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock said: "Blackheath Fireworks was once again a show stopping event which attracted between 80,000 to 100,000 people this year.
"For the first time ever, the fireworks were started by our prize draw winner, Douglas Parrant, who did a great job in helping to light up the sky over Blackheath.
"We will continue to look at ways to increase fundraising and are hopeful that we will find a way to keep this very important free event going.
"I’d like to thank everyone who made a donation, including our main sponsors L&Q and Glendale as well as the Blackheath Society, The Clarendon Hotel, Sun-Ya, John Payne and The Everest Inn.”
- After the display, a fire at a hot food van left two people needing hospital treatment.
