It’s time to start thinking about the annual celebration of the downfall of a Papist Plot to kill the Monarch and install a more pliant Catholic monarch on the throne of England.
Sadly, the burning of effigies is somewhat frowned upon by most venues, but they slightly make up for it by the provision of a good night of fireworks instead.
I’ve trawled around looking for a calendar of firework nights and below is a list of what’s on and when.
If I’ve missed any (as I am bound to have), then send me a note and I’ll update the details.
Having skimmed their websites as I was compiling the list – I would suggest that Alexandra Palace will have the best additional entertainments in the run up to the fireworks.
Personally, I tend to stay at home as I can see a couple of them – in the distance – from my flat
