Bonfire Night: Guy Fawkes fireworks displays in London, Lewes, Manchester and across the UK

Guy Fawkes' Catholic Gunpowder Plot - an attempt to blow up England's Houses of Parliament and Protestant King James I on November 5th 1605 - left an enduring legacy in England, though clearly not the one Fawkes had hoped for. Celebrated annually as Guy Fawkes Night/Bonfire Night throughout Great Britain over 400 years later.


Looking forward to tomorrow night's bonfire and firework display!


Lewes Bonfire, Lewes, County Sussex, UK - Guy Fawke’s Day, or Bonfire Night, is traditional throughout the UK, but in Lewes the celebration reaches new heights
