The show must go on


The home of Kent cricket put on their yearly firework extravaganza last night, despite the heavy rain.

The event took place on the Spitfire ground, the gates opened at 5pm and the live acts begun entertaining the crowds. The fireworks were then let off at 7:15pm.

Act K-Rob, was one of the performers, she said:

“It was a great night despite the terrible weather, and it was lovely to be invited down to perform.”

The night was sponsored by KMFM radio station, and was hosted by DJ Rob Wills.


The event had 500 more people attend than last year, making the overall total for attendance 5500. This 500 people increase has been happening each year since 2012.

.Abi Hiatt-Gipson, marketing and promotions manager at Kent County Cricket Club, said:

“The night went very well despite the conditions. All the bands, dancers and DJ did a great job, huge kudos to them.  We would like to thank everyone who supported the event, and came out in the rain to see the fantastic fireworks.  We’re looking forward to next year with our fingers crossed for a dry night.”

The rain certainly did not stop the people of Kent from making the most out of their Guy Fawkes Night.
