Tonight's Burnham seafront fireworks promise to be 'spectacular'

The organisers of Burnham-On-Sea's annual seafront fireworks display say a spectacular show is in store this evening (Sunday).

This year's fireworks will start at 6.30pm, when a dazzling display will be fired from a special platform built on the town's jetty (pictured).

The 20-minute fireworks display will be accompanied by a line-up of hit music from the past few decades.

Organiser Alan Christie from Skyburst Illuminations told "It's going to be a special display this year - we have several new fireworks not seen in Burnham before, including carpet shells that will be fired horizontally over the sea."

"With the tide in, some of the fireworks will be reflected on the water which will add to the overall effect. It will be a cracker of a display."

He said: "The theme of the display will be a journey through jukebox history from the 1940s onwards - with memorable rock, swing and dance tracks including classics from Grease, the Blues Brothers, the Beatles, and many more."

The event, overseen by Burnham and Highbridge Town Council, will be free of charge thanks to local sponsorship, however spectators will be encouraged to give donations to the charity collectors on the seafront. This year's sponsors include Home Farm Holiday Park, Positive Wealth Creation, Retreat Caravan Park, Highbridge Caravans, Co-Op Funeral Care, PJ Harris Funeral Services and Skyburst Illuminations.
