Timelapse of Victoria Park Fireworks 2018 [Video]

Local resident and Roman Road LDN contributor Phil Verney created this timelapse video of the Tower Hamlets Fireworks in Victoria Park from a vantage point on Roman Road.

It condenses 20 minutes of display in 30 seconds of spectacular viewing.

This year’s glittering firework display had a spooky, monstrous theme inspired by the first science-fiction novel Frankenstein, which is celebrating a 200 year anniversary.  It was created by leading pyrotechnical and outdoor theatre company, Walk the Plank.

Walk the Plank has been a regular fixture at the Tower Hamlets Fireworks and are known for their story-telling arrangements, including the Great Fire of London in 2016 and the David Bowie inspired Sci-Fi theme in 2017.

The event is organised by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and is one of the few remaining free fireworks events in London.

If you liked this you would will probably love Phil Verney’s photography of the Orbit and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.

If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.
