Bonfire night came about following Guy Fawkes’ Gunpowder Plot in 1605, when he tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament. On 5th November Guy Fawkes was arrested and so still to this day it is a very British tradition that we celebrate with an array of fireworks.
Fireworks Night is loved by so many, with dazzling colours and sizzling shapes taking over the skyline. Not only are fireworks beautiful but they can remind you of someone, or of a particular moment. London’s displays are a truly spectacular vision and make a great evening out to share with others.
One of the most popular displays is held in Blackheath Common and attracts several thousand admirers. Whether Fireworks Night means something historic to you, something personal when you watch them sparkle and illuminate above you, or a fun evening out, come and share with us the most fantastic London firework display on 7th November. There will be food and drink stalls, but we’ll begin the evening socialising at a lovely historic pub in Greenwich. Join in and remember to wrap up warm!!
Can’t wait until then? Here are 25 stunning photos of fireworks in London. Which is your favourite – maybe no.16?
