Highlight of the Pleasure Gardens Fire Festival (17 Oct-3 Nov) is their Bonfire Night celebrations. Get stuck into hot food and drink at the various stalls until the bonfire is lit at 7pm, marking the beginning of the evening's entertainment: a Tea House Theatre show that tells of the origins of fire using storytellers, gymnasts, artists and even parkour dancers (they'll need to be careful what they're jumping on). The evening comes to its climax with a spectacular firework display at 8pm.

Completely agree with James, I was really looking forward to this, but spent an hour in a queue waiting for food, couldn't see or hear any of the performances and trees literally circled the site so it was pretty difficult to see the fireworks!
Interesting idea. Shame you couldnt see any of the performers or hear the compere... Not enough stalls for the amount of people, and the trees got in the way of seeing the fireworks.
