Remember remember the 5th November… gunpowder, treason and FIREWORKS!


The clocks have gone back, Halloween is just days away, which means it's officially time to plan your 2019 fireworks night.

Although Sainsbury's may not be selling fireworks this year, there are still thousands of firework displays taking place all over the UK this weekend, the question is – what are the best UK firework displays?

We've taken a look at the events going on this weekend to mark Guy Fawkes' historic attempt to assassinate King James I, and have picked some of the best UK firework displays and bonfires that the whole family can enjoy!
