Here are 5 events to check out this November in London.

 

Bonfire Night

As is tradition on the first weekend of November, the Autumn sky lights up with a flourish of fireworks to commemorate the foiling of Guy Fawkes' gunpowder plot.

There’s a host of firework displays taking place across the capital between Saturday 3rd and Monday 5th November, but this year’s highlights include the firework festivals at Alexandra Palace and the Guy Fawkes Festival at the Gunpowder Mills in Waltham Abbey.
