Like a set of soggy sparklers, Bonfire Night 2020 celebrations in London won’t be quite the spark of joy we were hoping for. Usually, the city's fireworks displays come complete with dodgems, laser shows, and banging tunes. However, this year things will be more subdued. All of the capital’s biggest displays have announced they will be canceling their bangs and sparks this year, including Alexandra Palace, Victoria Park, Blackheath, Wimbledon Park, Southwark Park, and Beckenham.
When is Bonfire Night?
Easy: remember, remember the fifth of November (the main firework action takes place on Thursday November 5 2020, although events usually run before and afterwards).
