The day of 5th November is traditionally known in the UK as Guy Fawkes‘ night, to commemorate the day when a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 was foiled. Bonfires were lit across London to celebrate and give thanksgiving for the plot failure, leading to the annual celebration of fireworks and bonfires to be established.Want to learn more?

Our walking group has received a special invite to two local evening events this coming weekend:
Saturday 5 November – fireworks at North Crawley; perfect if you like to experience quintessential English village atmosphere
Sunday 6 November – a bonfire and fireworks at Chicheley Hall
We are planning to attend these two events as a small group representing our walking society at Cranfield University. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Kristina.
