Johnshaven can mark the 2015 Firework Spectacular as yet another hugely successful event, with young and old coming together for what was truly a family occasion.

Intended only as a one-off event at its inception in 2001, the Spectacular has now become a permanent fixture in the social calendar.

This is due to the continuing efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers, known as the “friends and villagers of Johnshaven” who, as well as staffing the fireworks’ food stall, hold raffles and other small fund-raisers in the Ship Hotel during the year and also at the Fish Festival every August.

There was more to the occasion than just fireworks. From 6.30pm there was an opportunity to enjoy a burger, soup or hot drink while mingling with friends around the harbour, before the dazzling fire juggling and drumming group, Firepois, provided early warm-up entertainment from 7pm.

The sparks really began to fly with the main firework event at 7.30pm.
