It’s almost that time of year again to remember, remember the 5th of November and celebrate Guy Fawkes Night.


Looking for the 2014 Preston Bonfire and Fireworks displays map and info?

The guy who carried a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill King James the First. We remember his ‘Gunpowder Plot’ through the use of fireworks, bonfire parties and general celebrations. It’s really an excuse to have a firecracker of a party.

As every year, many professional organised displays take place in and around Preston. This year we have included events taking place a little further afield outside the city. If there any events we have missed let us know.

We will update later with any displays not yet announced in wider Lancashire, and you can view the displays on the map below and full details in the listings below.
