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.

With clever planning it can be possible to attend several 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.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Many thanks for compiling the list 🙂

  2. Pravena says:

  3. Ian Holloway says:

    Ally Pally’s back!

    V useful list – excellent work – thanks!

  4. Paul says:

    Thanks as ever for compiling this. I don’t think this one’s on your list yet: Southwark Park’s display, which looks to be going ahead on 5 November again.

    • IanVisits says:

      Thanks – the Southwark one wasn’t on their website at the time of compiling the list (a problem for several venues!).

  5. Sally dray says:

    Great list but why can’t London decide on a date and the whole city celebrate together instead of over two weekends. Don’t make sense.

    • IanVisits says:

      You’ll find that it is easier to spread the event over several days/weeks as there is not going to be enough skilled people to set off fireworks at every wanted display site all on the same evening.
