Durham Fire and Ice is over, but as we wave goodbye to the 2019 event, take a look back over some of the highlights in our video.

ExplorAR walked around the Fire and Ice Durham festival to capture some of the sights and sounds, including shots of all 10 of the 2019 ice sculptures, which followed the theme of Heroes and Villains.

We also spoke to Anne-Marie Lacey, who is part of the team behind Durham Fire and Ice, who explains the huge amount of work and planning that goes into Durham Fire and Ice each year - including how the whole process starts a year in advance.

At the end of the day, we headed to Durham Marketplace and got some video of the fire juggler, who entertained the crowds before the Durham Fire and Ice fire show spectacular.
