List of London’s Bonfire Night Fireworks for 2011

Time to start planning the annual celebration of the persecution of a Papist plot to kill our Protestant Monarch. Sadly, the burning of effigies seems to be frowned upon now, although a few venues will have bonfires this year.

Thanks to a rare conjunction of the calendar and history, Bonfire Night this year will be on a Saturday, so with clever planning it can be possible to attend three firework displays, spread over the whole weekend!

If I’ve missed any (as I am bound to have), then send me a note and I’ll update the details.

Prices displayed are for purchases on the gate – some venues offer cheaper tickets if purchased in advance (shown in brackets).

  1. Hi Ian – could you add our event please – it’s on a monday so good for people who might be away/busy over the weekend and want cheering up on a dark monday night. Plus it’s only £3 for adults and £2 for children for a 20 minute display set to music – all the details are on the facebook page. Thanks!
