Hexham Bonfire Night

THOUSANDS of eager spectators poured into Hexham on Saturday to watch Hexham Round Table’s annual pyrotechnic extravaganza.

The bonfire and fireworks event, which dates back more than 50 years, serves to boost the town’s economy as well as generating funds to support local charities and organisations. The Sele was packed with an estimated 12,000-strong crowd, who provided the countdown to the bonfire being lit and the professional 30-minute fireworks’ display, which illuminated the night sky above the town.
