We’ve been living in Hitchin for just over three and half years now and this year was the first time we could actually really go and enjoy Hitchin Bonfire Night. Hence Evelyn was too young at the time and I would rather have an early night sleep than watching the fireworks. (I know – that really sums up parenthood right?)
But Boy! I’m so glad we made it this year. The fireworks started at 7pm, which meant we had a chance to fill up our tummy with warm food before we head out into the cold.
There were food stalls there but since we already had our dinner, I felt it was better to stay put as the crowd had absolutely filled up the huge ground at Hitchin Priory!
Without being so cliché, the fireworks did really started off with bang! We also had a teaser – 15 minutes before the real deal went off. It really did got everyone’s excitement up. E&E were ecstatic!
The fireworks itself was a little short than I’ve expected (I do have a rather high expectation.) However, it turned out in our favour, as half way through Evelyn found it a little too loud, agitated and tired. I had to comfort her and soon she managed to clam down and enjoyed the rest of the fireworks display.
Did I tell you how glad I was that we did managed to make it that night? Yes – that’s right! Boy! Did they deliver their promises for the night or what! It was spectacular!
We’ve paid £20 for a family ticket at the door on the night, but it was also sold online for £14 prior to the event. I had only wish I made the decision to go sooner than leave it till the last minute! Well, now we know for next year!
Did you go out to watch the fireworks on Bonfire Night? How did it go? Do tell us in the comment below.
