Entertainment was provided by VIVACE who performed many genres of music.

There was also plenty of hot food and drink outlets to warm the crowd up, plus rides and glow sticks, lightsabers andcrazy hair!

Leighton mayor Cllr Ray Berry lit the bonfire before the fireworks who set off.

A Lions Club spokesman said: “We would like, through the LBO, to thank all the helpers and the public who attended the fireworks spectacular on Saturday.

“Luckily we were blessed by improving weather which helped us record an attendance figure approaching 4000.

“We haven’t finished all the counting yet, but are confident of achieving a profit of around £2,000 for our charitable account.

“As a result of this success, we aim to add even more attractions for next year. A great big thank you to Leighton Buzzard, See you next year!”
