It’s great to be back at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Having fired the Millennium display there (as several others in the early noughties) it will always have a special place in my heart. It’s also a great opportunity for a traditional Greenwich whitebait supper in the Trafalgar Tavern at the site visit!
Like many other sensitive venues, we keep the noise down for displays at the National Maritime Museum in order to minimize inconvenience to the local community, while still allowing wedding parties to celebrate with a firework or two…
On this occasion the happy couple were Karen and Julian, and it was another custom soundtrack for the Alchemy collection, featuring some serious trance anthems, which took me back to my days of neon body paint, white gloves and whistles. Despite the snow, which was bonnet deep on the road leading to our unit, we dug ourselves out and gingerly set off through icy lanes, before finally reaching some more major roads that had been gritted. After that it was plain sailing. A cold day for a fireworks display in London, and plenty of huddling in the van to keep warm, but the cold disappears after the adrenaline of the display and the cheer of the audience!
“Fireworks were fantastic! Thanks!” Karen & Julian
