The District Council has acted on feedback from a customer survey conducted after last year's eight-week spectacular. Every Saturday in 2017 will include a fireworks finale, with numbers in Derwent Gardens restricted to a maximum of 6,000 - down from 8,000 in previous years - to improve crowd movement and enjoyment for visitors.
To enhance the reputation of Sundays as a "family night", the event will start and finish earlier, running from 6-8pm to take account of the fact that younger visitors have school the following morning.
Other improvements for the 2017 Illuminations - the 120th - include better signage to the park and ride service, more stewards and more enforcement officers to police pedlars on the streets of Matlock Bath.
