Photo Essay: Guy Fawkes’ fireworks

by Carmen Allan-Petale

Every year around 5th of November, fireworks light the sky throughout the UK to celebrate Guy Fawkes’ failed gunpowder plot to assassinate the Protestant King James in the 1600s.

These photos were taken in Battersea Park, one of London’s most popular venues to watch the fireworks. We queued for an hour to get in, only to find an almost deserted entrance a few hundred metres nearby! Thankfully we didn’t miss the fireworks and were able to enjoy the dying bonfire, mulled wine in hand, shortly afterwards.
