"Remember, remember, the fifth of November" - a chant that was first heard in the 1700's in Britain to commemorate the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605.
For the past four hundred years people across the UK have remembered the foiled plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament by members of the Gunpowder Plot. It was the fifth of November when Guy Fawkes was arrested whilst guarding some high explosives placed under the House of Lords.
King James I survived the plot to kill him, and announced that on this day every year he gave the public a day of thanksgiving. since then, people across the country shut away their pets and make their way to the local bonfire display, where fireworks (and sometimes a 'Guy' placed on top of the bonfire) entertain and thrill crowds. Here's our list of bonfire and fireworks displays this year:
