Watch The Sky Lit Up To Music In Free Fireworks Display
The sparks were really flying as the skies were lit up over Tamworth as part of its spectacular fireworks night.

Tamworth's Castle Grounds proved the ideal location for the Tamworth Fireworks Festival which culminated in a wonderful 20 minute display, delightfully set to music, at 8pm.

The annual free fireworks event, organised by Tamworth Borough Council's Arts & Events department, attracted thousands of visitors of all ages to the Castle Grounds on Saturday 7 November.

As the countdown to 8pm drew near, the crowds picked their particular vantage point for the best view of the fireworks.

And while many people chose to remain on the flat close to the fireworks launch on the bowling green side of the Castle Grounds many, like myself, went for higher ground on the other side of the river.

And some went even higher and climbed the Tamworth Castle ramparts for a commanding view of the surrounding grounds.

Although the pyrotechnic display was the culmination of the evening, the fun actually kicked off two hours earlier.

They included a funfair, a separate sparkler zone for younger children, face painting, and a number of fire performers including a fire-eater.

There were also food stalls for people to get a welcome bite, although various restaurants were open within the town itself.

With so many people flocking to the Castle Grounds, it did take a few minutes of queuing to get back out into the town centre once the fireworks had finished.

But there were no problems and hats off to the council, who also provided free parking in its car parks from 6pm, for putting on such a terrific event free of charge.

The event was sponsored by the Chambers Tamworth car dealership, which exhibited some of its vehicles on the night.
