Guy Fawkes re-enactor in front of bonfire flames at Avoncroft Museum

Our much-loved traditional fireworks-free Bonfire Night will return to the Museum on Thursday 5th November 2020.

Perfect for those who don’t like bangs, whistles or other forms of fireworks (sparklers are allowed).

Join us in marking the anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot – Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605.  Participants can join us in making suitable Guy(s) to burn on the bonfire, craft activities and seeing our themed bonfire set alight.

Appropriate bonfire fare will also be available including bangers (the sausage variety) and other goodies.

Tickets will go on sale later in the year.

*Under 3s are free.
