The Uni of Essex Does Fireworks Night

The University of Essex’s Students Union out did themselves last night, putting on an absolutely cracking fireworks display. Taking place over the campus’ atmospheric duo of lakes, thousands of students, university staff and locals gathered on the Square 5 hillside to watch the star-studded showpiece across the sky.

Things kicked off at 6pm, with the University’s various societies running festive market stalls selling glowsticks and cookies. A particular favourite was the Theatre Arts Society, who were offering glittery makeovers for just 50p! The Students Union also ran a pop-up kitchen offering hot dogs, burgers, and ‘pimp your own’ hot chocolates.

Come 7.30pm, the crowd had gathered by the lakes in its entirety, ready to watch the display which came to a dramatic conclusion at 8pm- the speakers blared out Pavarotti, no less.

Here are some pictures of the night itself, courtesy of fellow University of Essex students themselves.

    Sounds like a fun evening. Liked the video but they should have used Franco Corelli instead of Pavarotti!
