Come the first week of November we’ll be hearing bangs and whizzes across Shrewsbury as families celebrate Guy Fawkes’ Night! What’s more fun for both parents and children than buying a box of fireworks and setting them off in their own back garden, along with toasting marshmallows around a bonfire?
However, not everyone has the garden space, and for some the worry of keeping the evening safe might be too much. That is why many families choose to celebrate Bonfire Night at a local organised display, and this year’s West Mid Bonfire and Fireworks Extravanganza in Shrewsbury is set to be the biggest yet!
On Saturday 5th November there will be food and drink stalls, a funfair, live music and of course a show-stopping firework display by the same company responsible for the displays at the Olympic Games and London’s New Year celebrations. You can relax and enjoy an evening of stunning fireworks, where all the health and safety has been taken care of!
Staying safe and happy
Whether you plan on holding your own Bonfire Night at home or are coming along to the West Mid Showground, here are just a few tips to remember on staying safe for the fifth of November!
Safe celebrations everyone!
