Words by Sareta Puri 

That notorious night of the year is once again approaching... The 5th of November, or Guy Fawkes' night, has plenty in store for us this year with captivating firework displays set to light up the sky all across the city. Check out our list of the fabulous displays happening south of the river and order your tickets quickly so you don't miss out!  

Blackheath Fireworks

Saturday 5 November - Free Event

Another rare free fireworks event – you get a great deal over in Blackheath with the funfair kicking off at 12pm. The display itself will be at 8pm set to music and with one of the widest spectator areas of any fireworks events it tends not to be totally crammed. Although it is a free event, numbers are controlled on the night. You also get spectacular views of these fireworks from nearby Greenwich Point. More information on the event can be found on the Lewisham Council website.
