Fantastic firework shows near you this November

Bonfire night isn't far away and we would like to hear of any fireworks displays or events happening in your area.

It will soon be time to start building bonfires, saving our pennies for the guy and writing our name with sparklers! Yes, bonfire night is here again and we would like to hear about any firework displays happening in your area. As always, the safest way to enjoy the festivities is to attend an organised display and we hope to share some of these with you on this page. If you’re the organiser of such an event, please send us all the details by filling in the comments form at the bottom of this page.

It would be great to see your firework photos too, so if you attend an event and would like to share your photos with us, please send us an email.

It’s important to take care when attending firework displays, so please read our fireworks safety advice page.
