Remember, remember, the fifth of November!
It may be cold, wet and windy outside but this Saturday evening all across the country the sky will be alight with the flashes of fireworks. From local school grounds to parkland and heritage sites, there will be displays held in a wide variety of venues to celebrate Bonfire Night 2016.
Leeds Castle near Maidstone is one of Britain’s most visited historic buildings. Erected in the early twelfth century this incredible site is steeped in history, taking you through various eras of royal ownership and an important role as a Tudor palace. Against this magnificent backdrop of stunning architecture and a millennia of history, this Saturday the castle will host a spectacular fireworks display. With images and words projected onto the castle itself, the fireworks will be followed by live music to ensure that you can stay and enjoy the setting and warm atmosphere throughout the evening. We sure to check out the great deals we have on at the local Ashford College branch just twenty minutes down the road.
Manchester’s Heaton Park will once again play host to this year’s Guy Fawkes celebrations as it opens its doors. Located in the north of the city and notoriously busy with tens of thousands expected, it is best to get there early to make sure you can get a good spot. There will be a huge range of other stalls and attractions open in the park, including a funfair for children and a large bonfire before the fireworks are set off later in the evening. If you are wondering how to get to Heaton Park on the evening, be sure to check out our great prices for ca rental from Manchester Piccadilly or any of our other nearby locations.
This year Liverpool and Wirral council have come together to put on an ambitious display that will set off fireworks right from the middle of the River Mersey. It is hoped that by making this daring move even more people will be able to witness the spectacle. There is sure to be all kinds of mid-river bank side entertainment as well as the main display, so get down there early to make the most of it!
In London there will be various displays going on but most are ticketed, so be sure to check before travelling. Lewisham council are once again organising fireworks on Blackheath Common and the event is completely free! There will be a funfair from noon onwards and a wide range of stalls, food options and a bar from 5pm. As it is one of the capitals only free events this Saturday expect it to be busy and head out early to avoid disappointment!
