York’s Doctor Who Bonfire Night Celebration!
That’s when Rawcliffe County Park, York, will celebrate both Doctor Who and Bonfire Night in style, incorporating fireworks with 3D effects and celebrity lookalikes. The Kaboom spectacular will mix pretty lights in the sky with lasers and special lighting while the audience equip themselves with 3D glasses, creating a truly unique effect.
David Tennant lookalike, Nigel Sumner, will be doing his best impression of
Kasterborous Associate Editor, Brian A. Terranova the Tenth Doctor, and Gary Goldthorpe takes on the mantle of Guy Fawkes.
There’ll also be a bonfire, so maybe Gary should be ready to run.
In addition to the Doc, a Cyberman and Dalek will be patrolling the area, and a TARDIS will stand proudly as well (though it’s unconfirmed whether it actually travels through time and space or not).
On 5th November, York Maze will have a firework display too, held at their incredible Dalek-shaped maze that celebrates the show’s 50th anniversary.
Rockin’ Horse Promotions’ Mark Brayshaw says:
“Our 3D fireworks glasses use Holographic Diffraction Lenses – Highly efficient, 13,500 lines per inch., double axis, holographic diffraction grating lenses. Holographic diffraction grating lenses separate light from any source into its spectral components.
Yes, our fireworks will be moving towards you in 3D and the glasses will then change them into a kaleidoscope of rainbow colours.”
Sounds quite mind-blowing actually!
Now, remind me again: why do we celebrate a terrorist group trying to blow up parliament…?
