Make Bonfire Night a real sparkler; GO - ZONE : Where to see firework displays in your area.

CLOCKS have now gone back, and the nights are getting darker, but the skies will be full of light and colour over the next few days. Yes, it's Guy Fawkes time again and Go-Zone wants to help you make this year's Fifth of November one to remember!

Bonfires are set alight, effigies are burned, and fireworks are set off to mark a moment in history when plotters tried to blow up the houses of parliament in 1605.

Guy Fawkes, of course, was at the centre of the treacherous plot to strike at the very cornerstone of democracy.

As the rhyme goes:

Remember, remember the fifth of November, Gunpowder treason and plot.

We see no reason Why gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
