Bonfire Night ( Firework Displays) in London – 1st to 7th November 2015

bbbbbimages

Bonfire Night is also known as Fireworks’ Night or Guy Fawkes’ Night. It’s a British tradition dating back to the Gunpowder Plot of 1605,  when on the 5 November 1605, Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the Houses of Parliament. To celebrate the thwarting of the plot to blow up parliament and kill King James I , people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act was considered an annual public day of thanksgiving.

Part of the tradition that developed was the burning of effigies of Guy Fawkes on top of the bonfire. However in the 20th Century, Bonfire Night is usually celebrated at large organised events, centred on a large bonfire and firework displays. Although traditionally Bonfire Night was only celebrated on November the 5th, in recent years the displays are often on the weekend nearest to the date.

London has a large number of displays often centred around parks and sports grounds, some which charge to enter and other ones that are free. Find out more by visiting the event website.
