Dickens night at Atherstone

We've been hanging about the Atherstone area so we could attend the Dicken's night (Sat 27th).  It was a fantastic night.  Lots of stalls along the street, with a brass band, a piper, a steel band, and a drum band.  I love this town, all the community gets together for such occasions.  I hope they made a bit of money.  Of course, none of my photos came out as the camera batteries died with the first photo I tried to take, and shots taken from the mobile were just a neon blur.  There was a firework display at 9pm which was spectacular.  We were standing on the canal towpath (what a surprise) when the first firework went off, followed by the howls and barks of all the dogs of Atherstone joining in, in protest. Did manage to take a couple of photos without the shaky hand syndrome.  It sure makes up for us missing the fireworks at Shugborough this year.
