VIDEO: Selsey Fireworks go off with a bang

THE JOY of the musicals was evident at the 2014 Selsey Fireworks on Saturday night (October 18).

With music from We Will Rock You, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Wicked, Singing in the Rain and many more accompanying the explosive display, the crowd gazed upwards in awe at the fireworks, provided by Selsey company Selstar Fireworks.

The bonfire was lit around 8pm, with people coming from all over the south coast for the display.

There were spots of rain in the air but a heavy downpour never materialised.

Apart from some of the crowd having to move for their own safety as embers from the bonfire were blown towards them, the weather did not affect the display.

Here’s a video of the display’s opening and accompanying fun fair.
