Fireworks display will ensure magical night for Newham residents

29 October 2013 in Events
A sparkling night of fun and fireworks awaits Newham residents on Sunday 3 November.
This year's spectacular fireworks display – at the free event brought to you by Newham Mayor Sir Robin Wales - will be cleverly choreographed to a stunning soundtrack featuring hits from Mumford & Sons, One Direction, Rihanna, Florence & the Machine, Jessie J, Katy Perry, Calvin Harris.

And a mouth-watering array of food and non-alcoholic hot drinks will be available to buy on site - including Thai noodles and curries, French crepes, jerk chicken and gourmet Lebanese cuisine.

Sir Robin said: "It's always terrific to see different generations of families enjoying themselves at our free events. This is a fantastic annual show and it's a great credit to all those who worked hard behind the scenes to make it happen. I look forward to seeing even more people at this year's event, enjoying themselves to the full.”
