Call it what you will – Bonfire Night, Guy Fawkes’ Day, 5-Nov – the fifth of November is undoubtedly one of the most raucous nights of the British year. The festival commemorates the discovery of Guy Fawkes’ 1605 plot to blow up Parliament. Most of England echoes with fireworks for several days around the fifth, and the celebration culminates with bonfires and the burning of effigies of Guy Fawkes. The best places to get in on the action are London’s Battersea Park and Oxford’s South Parks, where this year a 25-foot wicker effigy was engulfed in flames.
