…gunpowder, treason and plot! For over 400 years, we have been lighting bonfires on this night to mark the ‘Gunpowder Plot’. Did you know that the tradition of Bonfire Night began the same year as Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators were captured? Fireworks will be lighting up the skies across Northumberland this weekend at a host of organised displays. This year, 5th November falls on a Monday, so most public events are on Sat 3rd or Sun 4th. Here are a few of the most spectacular ones for you to visit. [ 02/11/18 ]
