A spokesman said: “It was an excellent turnout and we’ve had a lot of good feedback – the display was one of the best we’ve had.

“Bonfire night is one of our main events without a doubt. It’s an excellent night out for the children.”

He added that there were a number of stalls at the event which included a coconut shy, skittles, darts and the popular animal magic stall – where children could try their luck to win cuddly animals.
