THIS year’s Fireshow in Carlisle was enjoyed by an audience of around 40,000 people.

Organised by Cumberland Council, the Bitts Park event celebrated Cumberland, the area and its communities.

In addition to a spectacular bonfire, more than 2,000 spectacular sparkling fireworks lit up the sky. A Fireshow village, held in Castle car park, was an added attraction, offering food and family entertainment.
