We know the #EmmaWallaceWoman loves to light up the room and what better way than to wear some sparkle to one of the most luxurious fireworks displays. This week we’re rounding up some of the most epic locations to celebrate Guy Fawkes in. Here’s our top spots that are guaranteed to make November 5th go off with a bang…
Leeds Castle, UK
Set within the stunning historic city Castle, this iconic Firework spectacular is the perfect blend of old and new. This year the castle celebrates its 900th anniversary and is rocking a party to match. During the day you can enjoy live music, falconry displays and get lost in a maze. With the fireworks taking flight at 5:30pm, you’ll be treated to 25,000 starbursts filling the sky with glittering effect. A live DJ set will have you dancing the night away, with fairground rides and entertainment keeping you smiling all evening.
Lake Taupo, New Zealand
Every year, Owen Delany Park in Lake Taupo explodes with a stunning firework display and laser lights. Sponsored by the Starlight Cinema Centre, bring a picnic basket or treat yourself to a bite from the epic food trucks and settle in for the family movie before the fireworks and laser show start. A real family feel you can get the gang together and celebrate as a squad!
Alexandra Palace, UK
Affectionately known by locals as ‘Ally Pally’, this iconic destination is hosting its unmissable annual fireworks display with a variety of different activities and entertainment to enjoy. Bringing Bavarian festivities to the capital, they will be holding the UK’s largest German Bier Festival. For the film aficionados, The Luna Cinema will be screening movies whilst live music, a bonfire and an ice-skating rink provide endless entertainment for guests. Make sure you’re primed for the fireworks as darkness descends. This year they’re teamed with a soundtrack curated by Radio 1 and BBC6 Music presenter, Rob Da Bank – now that’s a cool way to light up the sky!
If you prefer a roaring fire instead of fireworks flying through the sky, then Battle is one of the best. They have been holding huge bonfire celebrations for over 300 years with 30 local bonfire societies teaming up to take part in an impressive torchlight procession through the town. Participants dress up in elaborate costumes, portraying everything from pirates and clowns to ancient Aztecs and Saxons. Anyone can join the fun so get your outfit ready and immerse yourself in tradition.
St Vincent and the Grenadines
For the former British colony in the Caribbean, Guy Fawkes Day is celebrated with English customs such as tea parties alongside the rate unique tradition of bamboo blowing! In this custom, heated kerosene is used to ignite an explosion in hollowed out bamboo cannons (to mimic the sound and fire of old cannons from the colonial days). In addition, there are fireworks displays on many beaches so you can enjoy the sky being lit up with the sand between your toes.
So what are you waiting for? Book those tickets and remember, baby you’re a firework!
