The annual HSBC Celebration of Light draws hundreds of thousands of fireworks fans into the West End every year. This year, for the first time ever, four countries (Italy, China, Czech Republic and Mexico) will compete in front of a panel of judges chosen from the many sponsors that support the event. Every fireworks night, these VIPs and their guests gather at the Boathouse Restaurant for a pre-show cocktail party and elegant dinner before turning their discerning eyes to the skies for the big show.

Due to server capacity, you will
not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs.
With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would
quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.
If you would like to receive a copy
of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the
details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number
and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for
security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures
to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo.
