Anyone who was there will know that Saturday’s Battersea Park fireworks were superb. Congratulations to the council and Pains Fireworks for organising them.
If you missed them, or want to see them again, but you don’t have a full 20 minutes, then my video might help. 20 minutes of fireworks compressed into 2 minutes… well, more accurately, 19 minutes of fireworks compressed into one minute, and then the final minute in full.
The reaction on Twitter was certainly positive, some going as far as to rate them as the best they’ve ever seen:
Some made cultural references I just don’t understand:
Just back from Battersea Park Fireworks Display. Great show. Like #glee, but with explosives.

Some just made me proud to be a Battersea, rather than Clapham, resident:
fireworks over Battersea Park seen from our terrace tonight knocked the socks off last night's Clapham Common ones.

Although some people were facing the wrong way:
Nothing is happening. The Battersea fireworks must be experiencing technical difficulties. Another local authority with egg on its face.
