Meet at Vauxhall tube station at 6.30pm.

There'll be stalls selling various types of hot food and drinks. Bonfire will be lit at 7pm marking the beginning of the evening's entertainment - a Tea House Theatre show that tells the origins of fire using storytellers, gymnasts, artists and even parkour dancers. The evening comes to its climax with a spectacular fireworks display at 8pm
