Fireworks night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, historically began due to the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London; and months later, the government introduced an annual public day of thanksgiving, called the 5th November Act to commemorate the plot’s failure.

 

 

These days, many celebrate the event with fireworks, family gatherings and good food. Clevedon is no exception!
