‘Huge success’ for Sandwell Goes Global events

Two Sandwell Goes Global events held over the weekend – including the borough’s biggest-ever fireworks display – have been hailed a “huge success”.

Thousands of people attended the events at Dartmouth Park in West Bromwich to enjoy amazing entertainment and have great fun. 

On Friday (4 November), around 5,000 people were wowed by the colourful Illuminated Garden and Playground by Night, while Saturday’s sell-out fireworks evening provided a spectacular display with around 8,000 people attending.

With a range of exciting zones providing entertainment and food with a global flavour, there was a real celebratory atmosphere at both events.

The Sandwell Goes Global theme celebrated Sandwell’s place in the world and builds on the successful hosting of the swimming and diving events at the Commonwealth Games this summer.

CBeebies star YolanDA headlined Friday’s event, taking her popular children’s music show from the TV screen to the live stage. Sandwell Council Leader Councillor Kerrie Carmichael said:

“I would like to thank everyone who came to the illuminated garden and fireworks events.

“It was great to see so many people having such a fantastic time at our biggest-ever fireworks display and enjoying incredible entertainment, activities and fun on both nights. These events have been a huge success.”
