Bonfire night in Shropshire 2016

... Comments

Each year, Shropshire - along with the rest of the UK - marks the historic moment when Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and King James I in the Gunpowder Plot on 5th November 1605; this date is known as Guy Fawkes Night, or more commonly known as Bonfire Night.

On Bonfire Night, bonfires are lit on which effigies known as “guys” are burned; while the skies are filled with colourful fireworks. It’s also a time to enjoy traditional Bonfire Night food and drink, alongside music, funfairs and family activities.
