Twyford & District Round Table charity bonfire & fireworks night is celebrating 80’s & Disney movies at King George V Recreation ground Twyford. This year there is a Facebook poll to pick a Disney villain effigy to be lit atop the bonfire so get voting! Sponsored by Grapevine Estate Agents, you will not want to miss this fantastic mid-winter community festival complete with BBQ, a contactless and cash bar stocked with real local ales, traditional mulled wines, plus hot chocolate and coffee. Our stalls, and fairground rides for the young and young at heart, will blur the night sky and bring the night to life. Buy discounted tickets online in advance and save.

The UK’s largest low noise firework display choreographed to music more than makes up for the drama in visual impression at the Halloween Spooktacular Bonfire and Fireworks at Henley Showground. Without the huge explosions more families will be able to enjoy the dazzling displays without upsetting the children (or four-legged friends) in the local community. https://henleyspooktacular.eventbrite.co.uk
