Fabulous Fireworks

Round & About

bonfire night

Flash, bang, wallop… it’s fireworks time!

Remember, remember the 5th of November… it’s that time of year again when we mark Guy Fawkes’s plot to overthrow the king and blow up Parliament in 1605. Bonfires were set alight to celebrate the safety of the King and since then the event is commemorated with fireworks and burning effigies. Expect to see flashes of colour and hear loud bangs and whizzes as thousands enjoy the annual spectacle. Here’s just some of the displays you can enjoy locally…
