Remember, remember, the 5th of November: gunpowder, treason and plot! (And bonfires, sparklers and mulled wine!)
1) Glasgow Green
Everybody’s seen the video of a certain phallic firework show which dominated the internet in 2013; whispers erupted that it was Glasgow’s doing but don’t feel put out: it was a hoax. Glasgow’s actual annual show displays far more child appropriate scenes including free funfair, catering, bonfire and — of course — fireworks (7:30pm)!
2) ‘Sparks in the Park’
Welcome to the biggest Bonfire Night display in a all of Wales; and you can be a part of it for just £10 a ticket! Watch as Catherine Wheels and rockets explode and fizz in a multitude of pyrotechnic amazement at 7pm!
3) Legoland, Windsor
An entire theme park dedicated to Lego and Lego creations, the one thing that won’t be Lego this year will be the fireworks! An array of sparks and excitement, happily spinning to well-known music — all inspired by the Lego Nexo Knights.
The beloved city of the Scousers is attempting to win over our hearts with an ambitious and creative exhibition: a mid-river display. Having teamed up with Wirral, the fireworks should be able to be spotted from any side of the river! This is definitely history in the making — or rather, in the exploding.
5) Drayton Manor, Birmingham
These clever little theme parks just don’t quit — Star Wars, a laser show, a bonfire and fireworks! These are just a few of our favourite things, there’s plenty more.
6) Pyrotechnics of the Round Table
Oxford’s Round Table events invites you to join them in their celebrations on the 5th November: a funfair, a soundstage, live music and an enchanting lighting of the bonfire after a magical firework display — and all money raised goes to local charities!
7) Bude Rugby Club Cornwall
All the usual bonfire necessities plus a best Guy Fawkes competition, a bar and a BBQ! Because nothing tastes as good as having sticky BBQ sauce exploding in your mouth whilst fireworks whistle up amongst the stars.
8) York Maze
The man himself; the twisted gunpowder fiend: Mr Guy Fawkes was born in York which gives this particular event that little bit extra va va boom! A choreographed firework display will crackle throughout the night whilst live music blares, food stalls warmly beckon and comedy sideshows call out.
9) After Dark Bonanza
Sheffield’s annual After Dark Bonfire Night celebrations will be held at the Don Valley Grass Bowl from 5:30pm until 10pm! There are no age restrictions and the firework display is one that will leave you gaping in sheer awe!
10) Brent Fireworks Display
The North of London city calls you to come visit the Brent Fireworks Display at Arena Square. Put on your jolliest hat, cradle a cup of mulled wine, and enjoy the show. Street food and street performances will feature too!
