Bonfire Night Guide 2014

Bonfire Night - or Guy Fawkes Night - is one of the UK's favourite festivities. Although officially on the 5th November, Bonfire Night events take place for a few days before and after the 5th November, commemorating a botched attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill the King!

As the traditional rhyme goes:

"Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot. We know no reason why gunpowder treason should never, ever be forgot."

Traditionally, we've been lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks for the last 300 years, throwing wild Guy Fawkes Night parties as a demonstration of national pride and generally our love of a good Winter party!
