Long Crendon

It’s that time of year for gunpowder, treason and plot; and of course to dust off the bobble hat and don your wellies for a firework spectacle to remember.

On Saturday, November 7, Long Crendon will hold its annual Fireworks Display, starting with an exciting Glow Stick Light Procession for all the children and families to enjoy. Building on the success of last year, Chilton Road in Long Crendon will be closed as the parade takes place from the Scout Hut up to the Long Crendon school field.

And the fun won’t stop there. As well as the fabulous firework display, there will be a barbeque, disco, tuck shop and bar selling local XT brewery beers and warming mulled wine – all to make sure the whole family has a great time. Come rain or shine, organisers are confident that this is sure to be one of the best fireworks displays in the area and over 1,000 spectators are expected to attend the event.

The Glow Stick Light Procession starts at 4.45pm at the Scout Hut, Long Crendon, and doors open at Long Crendon School at 5pm.

This year tickets can be bought online, and there’s a discount to buy early. Kindly sponsored by Fisher German estate agents, for more information and to buy tickets, visit www.longcrendonfireworks.co.uk

Thornborough

The traditional Guy Fawkes Night will be held in Thornborough on Saturday, November 7.

The bonfire and firework display gate opens at 7pm, but all are invited to join the traditional village Torchlit Procession that starts at 6.30pm from the Two Brewers, High Street, Thornborough, on Saturday, November 7.

The procession proceeds directly up the Nash Road to the venue on the outskirts of the

village. Tickets on sale at the Two Brewers from 6pm – this avoids queuing at the venue gate.

Thornborough Village is just off the A421 about two miles from Buckingham. There is plenty of room for parking along the High Street and Village Green for visitors to the event. For safety reasons parking is prohibited along the Nash Road by the venue. There is no parking at the venue.

The gate opens at 7pm and is at the ‘Thornborough’ village sign on the Nash Road. Admission for the event is £6 for adults, £4 for Senior Citizens and children. The fire will be lit at 7.15pm and the firework display is from 7.30pm to 8pm.

In case shelter is required, there is a big marquee on the field. Hot food, soft drinks, mulled wine and more will be on sale in the marquee.
