The town where holding fireworks over your head is a tradition


Bridgwater Carnival, in Somerset, has a long tradition of squibbing: a huge procession of people holding fireworks right above their heads. This year, I got the chance to be one of the squibbers. Thanks to all the Bridgwater Carnival team: their site is https://www.bridgwatercarnival.org.uk/

(Thanks to the person who first emailed me about this: the reply-to address on your email is broken, so I’ve never been able to get in touch to say thanks, and don’t want to name you here without permission. It was a great idea!)
