Outdoor & Carnival, Special Events & Spectaculars

After opening the London 2012 Festival with a bang - quite literally! - don't miss your chance to see this spectacular event as part of the WE PLAY Expo, a whole weekend of unmissable free events celebrating our region’s unique contribution to London 2012.

On The Night Shift is not a firework display. And it’s not a concert. It’s more than that. Les Commandos Percu combine the two to create a magnificent spectacle for your eyes and ears. Their shows perfectly blend musical rhythms and amazing effects, as fireworks dance to a thumping soundtrack.

This new show, featuring specially selected artists from the UK takes the company to a new level.

On the Night Shift is part of the WE PLAY Expo - everyone’s invited to join the party in Preston 7 – 9 September 2012.

Sadly the park was full so we only got to see bits from a distance through the trees - sounded good though. I hope those close to the action had a great time.
