This is the one of the biggest firework displays in the UK provided by Titanium, the company behind national celebration fireworks such as the Commonwealth Games and New Year displays in London and Edinburgh.

With live music, free covered grandstand seating for 2,000 people, a large fairground, food outlets and a licensed bar, it's a great family night out.
