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).
