Bonfire Night 2017

Bonfire Night in 2017 is on Sunday 5th November, but there are many firework events taking place across the whole week throughout South East England. See our events calendar for a wealth of inspiration and ideas.

Counties covered include Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and the Isle of Wight. There are plenty of things to do for the whole family and lot of entertainment for the kids.

What is Bonfire Night and who is Guy Fawkes?

Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, the event originates from the failed Gunpowder plot of 1605 and has been marked in Great Britain for more than 400 years. Arrested guarding explosives intended to assassinate the King, Guy Fawkes became synonymous with the plot and it’s his effigy associated with the phrase ‘penny for the guy’.

To celebrate the survival of King James I, bonfires were lit across across London and an Act of Parliament was passed calling of an annual thanksgiving. Although its connection with politics and religion has dwindled throughout the years, the numerous events taking place in South East England show the celebrations to be as popular as ever.
