Remember, remember the 5th November! (Near enough anyway) It’s Bonfire Night weekend so wrap up warm and enjoy some freebie fireworks this weekend. Oh, and as always there’s loads going on across the capital. Here’s our hottest tips.
Our top choice to enjoy some FREE whizzbangs, sky rockets and Catherine wheels is at the musical themed Newham Council’s Guy Fawkes Night.
Huge rockets at the East London extravaganza will be accompanied by music from eclectic range of artists including Jean Michel Jarre and Primal Scream. Elsewhere there’ll also be funfair rides for the kids and food stalls with warming mulled wine for the very big kids. Nice!
