Spooks and Sparks


Spooks & Sparks Night 2016

Wow, what an amazing night Spooks and Sparks 2016 was! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that came to the event this year and everyone who helped out on the night, we really appreciate your support, without you we couldn’t put on this event every year! Also, I think we speak for everyone when we say how incredible the fireworks were this year too! It may have been a very cold night but that didn’t ruin anyone’s evening, the magic show from Huxley was out of this world, the face painting by Tracy’s Faces was spooktacular and the fairy den by Chartini was magical! All the children were so excited to see Elsa from Frozen, Rapunzel, Iron Man and Batman at the event walking within the crowds! Overall, we feel that once again the event was a huge success and we cant wait to do it all again next year! 

Below is a selection of photographs taken on the night as well as a drone video of the fireworks filmed by Flying Vision LTD.

Newport Parish Council’s Spooks & Sparks Night 2015

The inaugural Spooks & Sparks Night, hosted by Newport Parish Council and Isle of Wight Radio at Victoria Recreation Ground, was a resounding success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in attendance. During the event, which was a mixed Halloween/Firework Night theme, live music was played, magic was performed by the superb Huxley, culminating with a spectacular firework display. A wide selection of food vendors were also on site throughout the night, providing hot and cold refreshments. The Parish Council hopes to build on the success of this year to make future events equally successful.
