Fireworks fun goes with a bang

05 November 2012

Villagers gather for a firework display in BearstedThe skies over West Kent lit up at the weekend as dozens of Bonfire Night celebrations went off with a bang.

Thousands of people headed to Leeds Castle for its ‘Spooktacular’-themed fireworks display on both Saturday and Sunday November 3 and 4, with a range of children’s activities, live music and stalls keeping visitors entertained throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

Hundreds attend the huge bonfire and fireworks display at Larkfield Village HallFire eaters wowed the crowds who gathered at Kent Life in Lock Lane, Sandling, on Saturday night for the annual firework display.

Delicious hot potatoes and a Dress the Guy competition were among the highlights enjoyed at the Spuds and Sparkles evening at St Martin’s Church, Shepway, while at St Margaret’s Church in Barming, cups of hot soup were handed out to keep visitors feeling toasty.

Other events which attracted big crowds were the fireworks display at Larkfield Village Hall in New Hythe Lane and, for the first time, at the Elizabeth Harvie Field in Bearsted.

The Hop Farm also proved popular, with thousands heading to Paddock Wood for the annual display.
