Pyrotechnics used by global stars including Kylie Minogue, U2 and Tina Turner will be on show in Suffolk this Halloween.

Stonham Barns’ inaugural Halloween Spooktacular and Laser Pyrotechnic show will feature displays from Laserhire, which has also worked with acts such as N Dubz and Tinchy Stryder at world famous festivals including Glastonbury.

Three shows on Friday, October 27, will see 30ft pyrotechnic blasts, lasers and dry ice displays set to music.

Keith Flunder, who runs Laserhire, said: “We are going to be putting on quite an artistic show with a spooky theme. We’ve been fortunate enough to have helped entertain the crowds all over the world for 40 years and we are really excited to be doing the same at Stonham Barns.”

Gary Newland, event manager at Stonham Barns, added:”To have secured the services of a prestigious company like Laserhire is a real coup for us and all our visitors; it will be a super spectacular spooky show that we are sure those present will remember for many years to come.”

The event will also feature magic shows, pumpkin carving competitions, fancy dress, face painting, balloon modelling and games.
