Warm yourself with a cup of mulled wine and some delicious treats from the BBQ.



Have all the fun, without any of the danger! How to stay safe this bonfire night:

  • Remember to wrap up warm on bonfire night by wearing gloves, scarves and hats – especially the little ones!
  • Be careful when handling sparklers, making sure to wear gloves, lighting from an arms length distance and keeping away from others. Do not touch the end of the sparkler, even when put out.
  • Only use sparklers when supervised by an adult. Do not give sparklers to children under the age of five.
  • Keep your pets inside during bonfire night as bringing them along/letting them outside is likely to cause harm or distress.
  • Always stay at a safe distance from any bonfires or fireworks displays.
  • Put your camera or phone away (the photos never turn out any good anyway), look up and enjoy!
