Up until 1859 it was a compulsory celebration in England. As an English citizen you were obliged to celebrate the deliverance of the King on the anniversary of the failed Gun Powder Plot.
Now, although no-one’s going to force you to attend any of these wonderful bonfire and firework displays; we heartily recommend them. There are some terrific displays planned and you don’t want to miss out.
