FIREWORKS will light up the sky this weekend in a huge, spectacular celebration of a fantastic year.

Fresh off the set of Deal Or No Deal's Guy Fawkes special, the team from the award-winning Star Fireworks is ready to wow the crowds at South Hill Park's (SHP) display on Sunday, which will celebrate the Olympics, Paralympics, Diamond Jubilee and completion of the revamp of the arts centre's grounds.

There will also be live music at the free event, held in front of South Hill Park, on the other side of Ringmead. It will be followed by a free showing of The Muppets (2011) on the south lawn, in the grounds behind the arts centre.

Andy Hubble, director of Star Fireworks, based in Bullbrook, said: "The display is almost complete; there's a few things that we will do at the last minute but it's all going to be ready."

Mr Hubble does not want to spoil the surprise but revealed to the Midweek that he will be using a variety of special shells, lasers and his personal favourite - spinning butterflies - for the event, alongside a myriad of other scene-stealing fireworks and explosive action pieces.

Big bangs and cascading umbrellas will provide the perfect balance, and Mr Hubble added: "It's meant for the whole family and we don't want to scare the little ones off too quickly!"

He is keen for Star Fireworks to be "community spirited", particularly when working in the company's home town, and is prepared to pull out all the stops for the occasion.

"We do displays all over the country but to do something on home turf is special because you just want to go that extra mile and do something extra-special," he said.

"Most of the crew live here and their families are here so it's nice to be able to get them along watching the event as well.

"We've got a few tricks up our sleeves and it promises to be huge - one of the biggest in Bracknell."

Star Fireworks, which is famous for working on shows like Big Brother - as well as the Bracknell Christmas lights switch-on - will kick-start the display at about 6.40pm, on the north field, opposite the Ringmead mansion.

Prior to the display, Edgbarrow School band will put on a show for the crowds at 5.30pm.

At 6pm, Bracknell Town Mayor, Cllr Shelagh Pile, will welcome visitors, followed by a set from young singer-songwriter Joe Emmett - the Bracknell's Got Talent winner.

The event finishes at about 7pm and the film will start after 7.15pm.

Refreshments and glow sticks will be in large supply and entry from 5pm is free, while donations for the Lowland Search and Rescue team, SEBEV, are welcomed.
