My friends and I make the trip to this gorgeous pub each year, as they always put on a brilliant Bonfire Night event. Without fail, there’s a crackling bonfire, live music and plenty of food and drinks stalls. All topped off with an amazing firework display. Of course, this year was no exception!
2018 was The Angel Inn‘s biggest event to date and it showed by how popular it was. It was heaving! But luckily, the field where the magic happens was more than large enough to accommodate the crowds. The atmosphere practically buzzed from everyone having a great time!
My nephew was absolutely mesmerised by the fire…talk about cute!
The live music also makes these events extra special. The Angel Inn had two bands playing: the talented local duo, Jay and Eli, to start and the funky band, The Secret Cabaret, to end. Both sounded ace and got people up and dancing…exactly what you want from a fun event!
As the night got in to full swing, sparklers soon came out. Little bursts of light seemed to sparkle everywhere I turned! The smell of mulled drinks and laughter from children enjoying the inflatables also filled the air. It was lovely!
Then came the fireworks…
The Angel Inn put on another great display! There were plenty of ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from the spectators too – especially from the children next to us, who were adorable!
After the last firework boomed, the crowd drifted away to enjoy a drink in the pub. This then gave the opportunity to have a bit of fun ourselves. We lit up sparklers – very kindly bought by Carl and Jodie – and played about with long exposures. As I was on a job, I didn’t get to spend much time with Dave, Jodie and Carl throughout the evening and thus, it was good to enjoy their company for a while and have a good ol’ giggle.
As the evening grew cold, the others headed in to the warmth. I opted to stay out longer to get more captures of the brilliant band and enjoy their set.
All in all, it was another delightful night and we’ll no doubt be there again next year!
