This year featured a new 17th century English Civil War re-enactment group - the Lord John Robartes Regiment of Foote - who performed a display in traditional clothing and a sword melee.

The regiment then led Buckingham’s traditional torchlight procession, before the lighting of the bonfire and the fireworks display itself, which was conducted by Bedford based Titanium Fireworks, a company who have done displays for London at New Year's Eve and Edinburgh's Hogmanay celebrations.
