Whos going down to the Riverside Festival tomorrow then for the fireworks display.
Dan if you want to try out your new camera it's well worth it the fireworks are amazing.
Im not taking mine because I don't have a memory card and can only take 3 photos at a time at the moment.

Just got back from Riverside Festival. The fireworks were brilliant and the general atmosphere with the jazz band and everything was a huge buzz.
Who else went?

The bands were pretty good especially the one before the fireworks.
I heard a really funny comment from the crowd during the fireworks display "With all these fireworks the police won't hear people being shot in the meadows".
Bit of a stupid comment but it was funny at the time.

Just got back from the cinema. Watched Transformers and it was, well err, crap to be honest.
Reminded me of Power Rangers. Got some good shots of L.A in it though.

I’ve just returned from a 3 week holiday and was expecting to read about 600 posts on the Leicester thread.

Now I find that we have an East Midland Forum.

It’s going to take me ages to read through!!

Although, I’ve had a quick look and it seems a bit confusing with all the other towns & Cities threads.

Welcome home Kurt. Hopefully the LEICESTER | Full Summary of Projects index will help you find those Leicester threads.

Your FAO Moderators thread worked after all!

This thread will always contain those comments now, whenever an outsider strays into the East Midlands forum. Ah well...

Here's to an East Midlands boom of regeneration!
I totally agree with Lears City & Bingethink.

Ref the various signatures “notts capital of the east midlands”, if we all do work together, could these please be changed to “Loughborough Capital of the East Midlands”!!

Also, it would be great if the moderators could remove the first few threads, and their negative vibe.

Yes, somebody needs to remove those nasty comments from the beginning of this thread, its a bit childish really.

Also this idea of Nottingham - Capital of East Midlands is a load of crap.

Well people might be interested in, as sir terry wogan dubbed it, "The Northampton Lighthouse"


At 128 metres the Northampton Express Lift Tower it is the tallest building in our region followed by the Cardinal Telephone Exchange building in Liecester at 84 metres. (According to skyscrapernews.com)

As we're in the skybar, should'nt we also talk about the skyvault:


www.skyvault.org

remember, that sculpture which will go over the M1 motorway and let people know they are in the east midlands

Dont know how to paste images (perhaps someone will help me...) but these images on this page show just what the experience will be like, using lifelike annimation:
