    What an incredible evening, I’d never seen anything like this before. For three nights in September the Lower Gardens in Bournemouth are transformed by the Carabosse artists of France. They are fire alchemists who create incredible atmospheric structures laced with hundreds of flaming firepots, mechanical fire machines, charcoal braziers and live music to create a magical environment.

    This event and the “Flowers by Candlelight” evenings during the summer draw on a tradition marked for over 100 years here. They commemorate the visit by the Empress Eugenie of France in 1896 when she walked through the gardens to bathe beside the pier, her way lit by candles.

    There was an amazing magical atmosphere to the event and we managed to get a few great photographs despite the tricky conditions.
