Remember Remember the 5th November...

Did everyone have a good Bonfire night last night?
I certainly did!
Having being able to hear fireworks from all over Leeds throughout the week, it was finally time to have a bonfire night of our own!



The most famous of which is the Hyde Park fireworks, the go-to for most of the student area.
Having set down our books and tedious essay work, we wrapped up in as many jumpers as we could find and toddled off into the cold.



Fur hats, Barbour jackets and Dubarry boots kept us all toasty warm in the frozen air.



Everyone was huddling round the bonfire, having a cheeky beer or two (or in my case tea!), and the Leeds Uni fire juggling and breathing society were keeping everyone entertained.


But before long, we could hear the Leeds City Council billowing down the megaphones and then, all of a sudden, there was a gigantic pop and flash of colour in the blackened sky.










Oh fireworks... They really are special. They are the sort of thing that regardless of your age, everybody loves.
Embrace the loud bangs, stare at awe at the diamonds in the sky, and if you're feeling the urge, make a wish.
Sadly no Guy Fawkes here, just a bunch of cold students who adore the fact that the 5th November makes them feel like they are 5 years old again.
Fireworks are just one of those things that makes you feel like anything is possible after all!

  2. Looks good, I went to Blackheath which was also good but I have to say I think my favourite is still Ealing fireworks, check it out next year - they set them to music which just gives it that much more an epic feel!

  7. There's something just so wonderful about fireworks isn't there?
    My favourites are the ones that silently woosh into the air and then explode Disney style into a thousand sparkles!!
