Thousands of people went along for the evening, with the start of the fireworks being delayed slightly to allow the last few people to make their way onto the site. By the time the countdown started an estimated 10,000 people had gathered.

The fireworks themselves were set off by Daventry-based MLE Pyrotechnics.

The display was set to music and lit up the town’s sky for 20 minutes.

As well as the fireworks there was free soup handed out by Tesco and a whole range of other food and items for sale.
