Kingdom praised for help at top fireworks night

22855485_10214586907647433_19876550_nKingdom was very pleased to once again help out at Merthyr Tydfil’s annual fireworks night by providing an events team to make sure that the event ran smoothly.

The Firework Skyshow 2017 was held on Friday 3rd November at Cyfarthfa Park in Merthyr Tydfil. As usual, it was listed as one of the top ten Bonfire Nights in the country.

It was hosted by the Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Trust, with gates opening at 5.45pm and the display starting at 7.15pm. The park was open until 9pm, and the event included a Fun Fair and lots of food and drink, as well as the spectacular backdrop of Cyfarthfa Castle. Approximately 4,500 people attended the Firework Skyshow.

After the event, Bethen England, Events Planner at Merthyr Tydfil Leisure Trust, wrote to Kingdom saying:

“I was really pleased with how the whole event was handled by your team and thought that you having your own radios with you being the point of contact for our radios worked really well so as not to muddle the communication, so thank you for that.

“We’ve had feedback via Facebook that all of the staff were really friendly and that the whole site felt really secure with the presence of your staff. Your staff also were instrumental in helping us trace the parent of a lost child.

“You were always prompt and courteous in your responses and any issues were dealt with in a highly effective manner. I would not hesitate to use Kingdom again.

“On a personal note, thank you for helping me through the stresses of my first year organising the event and doing the site visit with me to ensure that we had all bases covered.”
