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 Monday, so with clever planning it can be possible to attend four 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.

NB — there wont be a firework display after the Lord Mayor’s show this year, so Bonfire night is your best chance for some aerial displays before New Years Eve.

Prices displayed are for purchases on the gate – some venues offer cheaper tickets if purchased in advance (shown in brackets) — not to mention the ability to avoid the queue at the gate.

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
