Bonfire night itself was often a small affair with two or three neighbours and families meeting in one of the larger gardens. There was a small bonfire with as many fireworks as we could collectively afford. Nothing at all like the spectacular displays we now enjoy.
Bonfire Night is a really British institution and Cheltenham is putting on a good display across the town:
