We joined 100,000 ticket holders to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks on the banks of the River Thames in London. What a fabulous way to usher in 2018, and such a delight for the senses.
People were well behaved at the event and the crowd control by London City Police, including working horses, was truly impressive.
We enjoyed the three hour wait up to midnight with two new friends from Cologne, Anne and Stephan. Great conversation, and they shared their toe warmers and their Baileys. (We gave them a sample of our hot toddy but they weren’t impressed).
The soundtrack that accompanied the fireworks was comprised
primarily of contemporary female artists to mark the centenary of the female vote.
