Enjoy bonfire night in the West Country

Remember remember... to head to the West Country for a great fireworks display this November. Here are some to look out for:

Ottery St Mary, Devon: A tradition hundreds of years old, the famous Flaming Tar Barrels (pictured above) are not for the faint-hearted! The story goes that the flaming barrels were originally used for the fumigation of cottages and as a warning of the approach of the Spanish Armada. There are Seventeen Barrels in all, each sponsored by one of Ottery's pubs.

Bridgwater, Somerset: The Bridgwater Carnival, on 1st November, is the largest of the famous illuminated Somerset Carnivals which take place throughout November. In fact this annual Guy Fawkes event claims to be Europe's largest illuminated carnival and the oldest event of its kind in the UK.

Sticklepath, Devon: Sticklepath Fireshow, on November 5th, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. This year’s show and spectacular firework display is themed Quarks & Sparks - all will be revealed on the night!
