Remember, Remember The Fifth Of NovemberGunpowder, Treason And Plot.I See No Reason Why Gunpowder Treason,Should Ever Be Forgot.

Did you know?!?Up until 1959, it was actually illegal not to celebrate Bonfire night in Britain!Even today, whenever a new session is opened in Parliament, the Yeoman of the Guard will search the basement making sure no one is hiding!After the plot, a rule was made that a roman catholic cannot become King or Queen – this rule is still in place today.The gunpowder that was to be used was so old, it is a widespread belief that the plan wouldn't have worked anyway!When executed, Fawkes was described as the 'romantic caped figure of such evil villainy'Here is just a selection of Firework displays taking place around Norfolk.Hunstanton Cliff Top Car-parkSaturday 7th November 2015Gates Open = 5pm for funfair / stalls / bonfire / music and refreshments. Bonfire Lit = 6pmFireworks = 7.30pmKings LynnFriday 6th November 2015Bonefire Lit = 6.30pmFireworks = 8pmNorwich City Centre DisplayFriday 6th November 2015Fireworks = 7.30pm
