There are thousands of events going on up and down the country.

Bonfire night is upon us and there is nothing better than standing in a crowd, feeling the warmth of a bonfire and eating *those* kind of hot dogs (you know, the kind you only find at events like this that are covered in fried onions and sauce). Ok, we’re drooling. Anyway, there’s no better night to huddle with friends and loved ones and watch the colours explode in the night sky.

So that we don’t scare all our furry friends who don’t love fireworks as much as we do, go to officially planned events rather than setting them off in your back garden. Here are a list of events around the UK that will put on a night to remember.

Manchester – Heaton Park

As well as the firework display and giant bonfire, there is also a funfair and a huge variety of food and drinks vans for you to visit.
