Spectacular Light Show is a Great Success..

More than 1,800 spectators watched a spectacular Christmas lights and fireworks show in Barnard Castle.

The Son et Lumiere event which was produced and staged by Alan Hillary Events in conjunction with sister company Reaction Fireworks was a great success and received a huge round of applause as well as many positive comments, some of which were published in the Teesdale Mercury.

"What a great evening Dickens-in-Teesdale gave us on Saturday. Brilliantly conceived, excellently presented and well attended, on an appropriately crisp and clear winter's night, it was a lovely occasion for the whole community." Peter & Jan Singer

"Thanks to all those that worked so hard to make the son et lumiere and the fireworks such a great success." Anne Spiby

"It was the most magnificent and memorable evenings in a perfect setting. It would put much larger towns, even cities, to shame. Well done, and most appreciated." Trevor Darke
