HUNDREDS made their way to Cannon Hall on Sunday evening for their annual fireworks display.

Blustery rain showers thankfully stopped before the event got underway and scores of people turned out for the popular annual event.

Michelle Scott, 46, of Darton, brought her husband Paul, 47, and two kids James, 15, and Izzy, 12, along. 

"It's just an annual family thing for us now," she said. "The farm is so popular and the fireworks never fail to deliver."

It was the first time many people had seen the farm's new £1.4million farmyard, designed to give visitors a unique insight into the workings of a modern farm with purpose-built viewing galleries.

Opened this summer, the seven new farm buildings went down a treat with the kids.

Joanne Hall, 24, of Dodworth, brought her three-year-old daughter Maisie to see what all the fuss is about.

"Maisie's absolutely loved it," Joanne said. "The piglets were her favourite but she took to the 'moo cows' as well!"

However, disgruntled Jonathan Hirst, 41, of Grimethorpe, bemoaned the queues.

"I feel like a farm animal myself if I'm honest," he joked. "We're tightly packed in and we're all waiting in line for some food.

"Every queue is so long for drink, food and toilets. I feel a bit let down as it should have been organised better.

"It's almost like they weren't prepared to cope with the amount who have turned up."
