We are delighted to announce that the 2015 Spooktacular Fireworks Extravaganzas raised over £23,500. This was a record breaking year for ticket sales for the Event. A big thank you to our enthusiastic audience of over 4,750 who attended.
This year we hosted two bewitching shows with a Halloween twist and treats for those in Halloween fancy dress- young or old. The Blue Show was a sell-out and the Red Show was almost full.
In addition to a fabulous fireworks display by Pyromancer Fireworks guests were entertained by the Delighters Fire Circus Theatre, Rock Choir and either George Watson’s College Pipes and Drums (Blue Show) or the Edinburgh Academy (Red Show).
We are greatly indebted to the many people and organisations that came together to enable this event to go ahead. Thank you to the generous sponsorship from Morrison Construction and Connell and Connell, to George Watson’s College for once again allowing us to host the Event on their grounds, the fantastic support of so many volunteers, organisations and companies and enthusiastic audience. What a team!
Our aim to find a family friendly fundraising event, supported by the local community has now been established. To have such a beautiful clear evening for the fifth year running was incredible and an added bonus.
If you did attend SLA hope you had a fabulous evening, that you learnt more about our work and that we see you again next year at our next Fireworks Extravaganza!
