Guy Fawkes night fireworks

We will gather to The Anglers pub in Teddington to see their spectacular professionally organised fireworks show. This event has become tradition for our group, it will be 4th year in the row when we go there. Last year about 1500 people came to see the display.

I have booked us THE SNUG with a fire place, on the left side of the pub.

Please be prepared for waiting time if you order food. Also they have barbecue, hot drinks and snacks outside in the pub garden. If you are going to have a dinner please be there to place your order in time and if you are ordering drinks it is best to get those yourself from the bar in as big orders as possible since it's going to be a very busy night and you don't obviously want to spend the whole time in the queue.

The fireworks start at 7 PM. This is also a great family event. Please dress in warm clothes if you want to follow fireworks at the riverside garden where it is the best view to see the show. This is a good opportunity to start using your winter coat :)

Notice that official Guy Fawkes Night is on Tuesday 5th November but this event happens on the previous Sunday.

See more information at: http://anglers-teddington.co.uk

You will get there by buses R68, 285 and 281, take off at Teddington Lock and it is just a short walk towards the river.

This is The Anglers' own local event. Part of the income of this evening goes to local charities the restoration of St Richard's School's swimming pool, and the local RNLI. You will have possibility to donate money for charity collectors. The event itself is free of charge.

Some history... Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day and Bonfire Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was caught guarding explosives placed beneath the House of Lords and arrested. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.

See you in The Anglers in some serious gun powder smell :).

    What a great night with nice fireworks and friendly people. ok so it rained slightly but as far as I am concerned that didn't spoil the event since we were indoors most of the time. Thanks for adding it Heli!

    Its a shame a large no of people who sign up (100) don't turn up i.e, 50 and should be advised to update ie cancel on the website, Makes organisation very difficult well done Heli

      Hi, there is small parking space in front of the pub but then just the local streets. Would not advice arriving by car since it is such a big event.

    Hi everybody. I wonder if anyone would be interesed in going on a 7 night tailor-made cruise to Dubai & Emirates between November and February. If so the price is £589,00pp including flight from London and food. The temperature in Dubai in winter is around 21c. Please let me know ASP if you want to go as this is a special offer and will end by end of October. Thanks
