Gallery: The Longhill Burn

Relive this mysterious night of music, fire and fireworks in Longhill.

A beautiful bonfire, a burning crate of hopes and a spectacular fireworks display that lit up the sky above Eastmount Recreation Centre. What was this strange happening?

On 15 July the Longhill community gathered together for Act III: The Longhill Burn, created by outdoor arts company, And Now:.

Throughout the week, a giant and beautiful bonfire was built and hopes from the community were collected in a crate. Audiences gathered at Eastmount Playing Field to see the crate carried to the bonfire, with music and performance before it was burnt on the bonfire sending hopes out into the world, followed by a spectacular firework display that lit up the sky above Longhill.
