Framlingham Sound & Light Spectacular

Framlingham Sound & Light Spectacular

7th November 2022
Following the Sound & Light event on Friday 4th November, a news release was posted on Saturday to say Framlingham Town Council would be evaluating the event, and we want to add to that. It's clear that for some attending, the event was not what they were hoping for. We apologise for any disappointment.

This year, the Council wanted to try something different. We wanted a more environmentally friendly event that would be less upsetting to pets and other animals, and would avoid pollution. We wanted more community involvement and participation, and to use the atmospheric location of the Castle. A light show allowed direct participation by young people including children from local schools who contributed their artwork to the display. The show was intentionally an art spectacular rather than a traditional firework display. However, while we believe there is a place for this type of art event, it's not what was expected by some for Bonfire Night. Clearly for some we got this wrong.

We'll listen to feedback in considering next year's event, and we shall again invite help in the planning and organising.
