The kids love learning about the history of Guy Fawkes,which I’m glad, but to us remembering in this way has become more of a cultural custom, a reminder of how this date was marked in the past and to me a reminder of my childhood.  I now love creating new bonfire night memories with my own children.  

Do you remember, remember, the 5th November, gunpowder, treason and plot?  

We see no reason

Why Gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot ….

    You're very lucky to have something so wonderful on your doorstep (well a short walk away). It makes wonderful memories for children, just being out late when it's dark is great fun but fireworks and rides too!

    Sounds like a great effort by the local council and well supported too. I hope everyone was as generous as you with the donations. Sounds like a perfect time for you to catch up with your sister and the video really shows off how much the children enjoyed the evening. Having the kids growing up definitely makes a difference to how relaxed you feel on fireworks night! Thank you for sharing your evening on Country Kids.

    It looks like a great evening out! Love that first picture, beautiful light 🙂 We were so disappointed this year when the fireworks near us was cancelled, safety concerns apparently. I was really looking forward to them! Hopefully next year 🙂 #countrykids

    You've captured it so well, amazing photos. I love this time of year, so special getting wrapped up warm and watching the fireworks. Hopefully we are off to a display on Saturday evening. Great song – one of my favourites.
