Bonfire Night Events & Activities

Remember, Remember the Fifth of November

November, 2017

Remember, remember the fifth of November…. In 1605 Guy Fawkes had a secret plan to overthrow the king with his Gunpowder Plot, on the very night the plan was foiled, bonfires were set alight to celebrate the safety of the King. Since then, November 5th has become known as Bonfire Night. Throughout Britain the event is commemorated every year with bonfires and fireworks.

We have rounded together all the on-goings in and around the New Forest for you to join the fun…
