After seeing photos of HMS Illustrious at Greenwich once before with fireworks, on a whim I just checked the PLA website, and they have a navigation warning that advises that there will be fireworks tonight (Thur 7th May).
The barge will be stationed just outside Deptford Creek, so it should be possible to get some really good photos of the aircraft carrier and the fireworks from almost anywhere in the vicinity.

Alas, I am elsewhere tonight otherwise I would be down there like a shot!
(on the upside, my other appointment is at another recording of Have I Got News for You – my favourite TV show)
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
