Click here for 2012 Blog with lots of local events.
With Autumn fast approaching and the weather turning from the amazing 29 degrees of early October back to the more seasonable 12 degrees this week, everyone is beginning to look forward to Autumn and to the traditional festivities associated with Halloween and Bonfire night.
Traditionally a time when Autumn really feels to have arrived and Winter just around the corner, “Guy Fawkes Night” is a great opportunity for the family to enjoy the cold outdoor evenings either in your own back yard or at an organised Bonfire and Fireworks display.
We are blessed with lots of major tourist attractions and civic events around South Warwickshire and so have the opportunity to go to some of the best Firework displays in the country at Warwick and Kenilworth Castle etc.
Many local clubs and organisations run smaller events with an open invitation to visitors and guests to join in as spectators at their events.
Check out the list below of up-coming Bonfire and Firework events that I am aware of in the South Warwickshire locality and if you know of more, drop me a line and I’ll add them to this Blog.
There are some great opportunities to enjoy Guy Fawkes Night with a number of local bonfire and Firework displays in and around Warwick, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and South Warwickshire in 2011.
If you are thinking of organising your own Fireworks event, why not check out our very own local Fireworks specialist JORDANS FIREWORKS of Leamington Spa.
Here is a quick summary of a few of the main ones, with more details available in our Events Section with more info, maps etc.
