The Bell's third annual Bonfire and Fireworks Display took place at the village pub on Friday 3rd November 2017, and proved a huge success with the crowds!
This year the proceedings began with The Shakespeare Hospice Firewalk where over 40 brave individuals walked over hot coals raising approximately £12,315.61 for the charity.
The crowd congregated by the enormous bonfire, with a rather flamboyant looking guy (made by The Shakespeare Hospice Diversional Therapy patients and work experience team in the Young Peoples Services department) perched on top , to watch it set a blaze. A spectacular 18 minute firework display followed which was said to be "the best yet" by those that have attended annually.
Local duo Dos Gatos entertained the revellers with live music whilst The Bell provided BBQ food and mulled wine from one of two outdoor bars. Volunteers from The Shakespeare Hospice kept the children happy with glowing memorabilia, toffee apples and face painting.
The event was free to attend with all voluntary donations to The Shakespeare Hospice.
Participants from companies in and around Stratford, including Xtreme Gyms, CCL Solutions Group, The Bard’s Cricketers, BDR Voice & Data Solutions Ltd, and Alscot Estate, walked over 20 feet of 1236 degrees Fahrenheit red hot wood embers. Emma Holman-West, CEO of Alscot Estate and owner of The Bell, took part in the Firewalk and has so far raised over £4K in her sponsorship campaign “Conquering the Coals!”
