January 3, 2017 12:15 PM
Jack Morton Worldwide once again helped London ring in the New Year at the capital's Coca-Cola London Eye.
Jack Morton has conceived and produced the London NYE Firework Display for 13 consecutive years. This year's event was watched live by 110,000 people on the banks of the Thames, and watched on TV by millions on BBC One.
This year also brought a new element: for the first time ever, online viewers could see the display live in 360.
The 12-minute show was synchronised and triggered to Big Ben's chimes, and the display involved 12,000 fireworks producing 50,000 projectiles.
The Mayor of London's New Year's Eve fireworks has become an iconic and globally recognised event, reflecting our unique and wonderfully vibrant city, said Jim Donald, director of production, Jack Morton Worldwide. It makes us enormously proud to be working with the hugely talented team that makes this possible.
Jack Morton worked in conjunction with a number of organisations to deliver the fireworks, including: Greater London Authority, the Metropolitan Police, Westminster City Council, The City of London Corporation, Lambeth and Southwark Borough Councils, Transport for London, The Port of London Authority and London Ambulance Service and the London Fire Brigade.
