Be an explosive hit with all the family with these Bonfire Night Treats

Remember, remember the 5th of November! Gunpowder treason and plot.  

We see no reason. Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot!

Bonfire night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, is just around the corner. The annual commemoration sees bonfires being lit across the UK. These festivities celebrate the historical failure of the Gunpowder Plot, a plan to blow up the House of Lords. Amongst the group of conspirators was Guy Fawkes, who was guarding 36 barrels of gunpowder set to explode in an underground vault of parliament. Since the plot was foiled on the night of 5th November 1605 the tradition has survived in which bonfires are set alight, burning effigies of Guy Fawkes, whilst fireworks are set off to celebrate the safety of the monarch.
