Millennium celebrations, 2000
Zap have always had a long tradition of new year celebrations, the first of which was the infamous Hogmanay celebration in Glasgow in 1987. For the millennium celebrations in Brighton, Zap brought the biggest ever party to the Old Steine with street performers from France and live music, the pinnacle of which was a spectacular fireworks display at midnight.
The fireworks display, masterminded by pyrotechnics ‘Fantastic Fireworks’, launched £15,000 worth of explosives into the sky above the sea and produced gasps of awe from thousands of onlookers as the patterns of light were reflected and rippled against the black water.
