Remember, remember the 5th of November and celebrate bonfire night on The Suffolk Coast!
Although Guy Fawkes’ failure to execute the Gunpowder Plot at the House of Lords in Westminster has been celebrated in Britain since 1605, today Bonfire Night it’s all about family, friends and communities coming together for a thrilling display of shooting stars, heart-stopping explosions and vibrant sparks and darts of colour lighting up the night sky!
When the dark, chilly Autumn nights descend upon The Suffolk Coast this year we certainly know how to commemorate firework night with a big bang!
We’ve plucked out just a few bonfire night bonanzas which are taking place over the weekend…
