The bonfire was lit at 6.30pm and the firework display started at 7pm.

The entry donation minimum was £1 per person and guests enjoyed hot snacks, dinky donuts, ice cream, mulled wine and other drinks.

Bonfire and fireworks night is a uniquely British event. It marks the successful foiling of a plot to blow up King James I and parliament by Catholic rebels in 1605.

The fireworks act as a reminder of the gunpowder that was placed by the plotters under the Houses of Parliament.
