FIREWORKS fans who attended an annual display can now relive their experience after a photographer shot a stunning video during the event.

The Castle Park Fireworks Display returned on Friday night following the cancellation of last year’s 50th anniversary event.

The sold-out spectacle, organised by fundraising group King Coel’s Kittens, attracted thousands of spectators.

The evening extravaganza was captured on camera by photographer Steve Brading who has now released a video documenting the event.

The fireworks event, which always proves popular with both Colchester residents and those from surrounding areas, kicked into life at 6pm.

Following an hour of entertainment, including a mind-bending performance from magician Michael J Fitch, The Guy Parade made its way through the park.

Guests of all ages then gazed into a crackling bonfire before marvelling skywards at the exploding rockets of colour which sliced through the darkness.
