There could be a touch of "Music on Fire" or "Santa Lucia with Cannons" at Northampton as the local rugby club will also be celebrating November 5th.
Fireworks returning to Franklin's Gardens Northamptonshire Enterprise and Northants 96 are supporting the 2008 Northampton fireworks, which are being held at Franklin's Gardens on Sunday, November 2nd and Wednesday, November 5th.
Thanks for the info Drew - I hope the firewoks don't go off during 'Never saw Blue' or I might see red not blue !! Anyway, I'm really looking forward to another fantastic evening with Hayley and this time, its only a 25 mile drive.
Yes Mark, about 30 miles for me. This time Sue will be with me. I have already told her to expect one of the best concert experiences of her life. The Derngate is special to me, as it is the place where I first saw Hayley perform, four and a half years ago. I didn't know what had hit me. She had me in tears in ten seconds. I was just so uplifted, so alive after that. Even now, when I know what to expect, she still blows me away. What a voice, what a performer. And yet it seems so effortless. I think with the fireworks on the stage, I won't notice any others.
Music and laughter will fill the auditorium at Derngate theatre next week. On the road alone for the first time in seven years, soul legends The Temptations will appear for one night only on Tuesday.
The Temptations, with original band member Otis Williams, will perform all their well-loved songs including My Girl, Papa Was A Rollin' Stone, Just My Imagination and I Second That Emotion.
The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are priced £31 and £36.
Then on Wednesday Hayley Westenra takes to the stage. Best known for her debut album Pure, one of the fastest-selling classical albums of all time, 21-year-old Hayley shot to fame five years ago and continues to be one of the most popular classical sopranos around.
The show begins at 8pm and tickets cost £27.50.
If you do not have tickets yet there are approx. 120 remaining in the Upper Circle and Upper Circle boxes.
We are staying overnight at the Travelodge just out of town. We intend to check in there at 3 pm. Look forward to meeting up early evening, don't think we will make the coffee shop but we are intending to eat at a nearby Wetherspoons around 5 pm. The Moon on the Square
We have six of us for this event! Denise and me, Andy and Julie, my son's girlfriend, Wendy and making her Hayley debut will be Denise's mother, Thelma. We have four front row seats and two in Row B.
