    I doubt it's anything major. :)

    A fitting metaphor to end the season.

    Why am I not surprised that you said that, Crofty? :p

    In all seriousness, though, I'm sure it'll be fine. :)

    Oh dear! We drove past the fire truck (coming though Farley) and wondered if it was for the Towers, as a firework that didn't go up exploded and set fire to the lawn for the whole show. :p

    There was three fires that started around the fireworks throughout the show and some of us started to sing along about them by swapping words in the songs for 'fire' and whatnot. Didn't think it'd result in this though. Woops! :p

    They said no flames? You can clearly see them in the photo!

    This is what I said.... They don't have one.

    I wonder where that's come from.

    The bonfire of the capitalist pig's morals?

    In all seriousness, the way this was handled by staff was idiotic at best and dangerous at worst. Burly "hard" security trying to move people away and stop them taking photos, we were even told the classic "Move away, nothing to see here"!

    It seemed that they just stood and watched it burn, there were flames and rather a large amount of smoke, even when red-hot pieces were falling around them, some falling on Hex's tinderbox of an extended queueline.

    There was one member of staff in Dark Forest who was refreshingly honest when telling us that the entrance to DF was closed. I asked if it was because of the fire and she said "Umm, errr, well, yeah, it's because of the fire."

    The fireworks events attract hundreds of people according to Sky.
