WELL over 6,000 people enjoyed the first fireworks display hosted by Eleven Arches last night.

The creative and pyrotechnics team behind the acclaimed open air show Kynren- and epic tale of England, at Bishop Auckland, wowed the almost sell-out crowd with a spectacular 30 minute show.

Pyrotechnics were cleverly coordinated with a specially-cut soundtrack of music which took the audience on a time-travelling journey from the 1960s through to modern day.

As with the summer show, volunteers helped pull the event together and ensured everyone had a fun, safe time.
