Guy Fawkes Night in November
Remember, remember the 5th of November!
It’s that time of the year again, when the sparklers come out and we ‘oooh’ and ‘ahh’ at the various displays of fireworks across London. When bonfires become the evening entertainment instead of rooftop bars, and we gracefully edge ourselves into winter with an evening of glowing fires and family fun.
Across London, people are putting on events celebrating the time Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament with King James inside.
So it’s time to wrap up warm and enjoy the best of what’s on offer in London this year…
Fireworks at the ArcelorMittal Orbit
The slide which took residence in the Olympic Park in Stratford will this year be open on Bonfire Night providing exceptional views of the displays from surrounding areas such as Clissold Park, Wanstead Flats and Alexandra Palace. The slide is open until 8pm, and for those over 18 there is bar available all evening.
