Fireworks and Bonfire Night displays in Berkshire

As Guy Fawkes’ Night approaches we round up fireworks and bonfire nights taking place across Reading, Wokingham and Bracknell.

On this day 5th November, 1605, Guy Fawkes was arrested when around 30 barrels of gunpowder, camouflaged with coal, were discovered in the cellar under Parliament, Robert Catesby's small band of Catholic Zealots who planned to blow up James I and Parliament were only arrested after Fawkes revealed their names when tortured on the rack. The 'Gunpowder Plot' is commemorated each year in Britain on 5th November, 'Guy Fawkes' night or Bonfire Night
