Gunpowder, Treason and PlotBonfire Night or Guy Fawkes Night is celebrated throughout the UK and some British colonies on 5th November. It marks the downfall of the Gunpowder Plot of 5th November 1605 in which Catholic conspirators including Guy Fawkes were alleged to be plotting to blow up the Houses of Parliament to unseat the government of the day.
Today celebrations include fireworks and the building of bonfires, often topped with a "guy" traditionally made by children and burnt. Before the night children will often go door to door around the neighbourhood requesting "a penny for the guy".
Bonfire and FireworksNaturally the central feature of any Bonfire Night celebrations is likely to be a bonfire and associated fireworks.If your pub has a large external area you might be lucky enough to host your own bonfire and organised firework display - alternatively you may be able to cater for customers returning from an organised display nearby.
Bonfire Night FoodNo traditional Bonfire Night would be complete without the obligatory pork pie and mushy peas, or jacket potatoes. Also tofee apples and cinder toffee are traitional treats. Most customers will be only too happy to pay a little extra for some traditional Guy Fawkes Night fare while standing in the cold watching the fireworks display and bonfire.
