Firework - not just a Katy Perry hit

Yep, another date for the diary, bonfire night! Here's my round-up of the top Surrey and London displays and even some themed recipe links (who even am I?).

Surrey Sparklers

Yes, I am saying that tongue in cheek, as even as a thirty-something woman, I'm STILL scared to hold or be too near a sparkler. That said, I LOVE a firework display (and the bonfire, and the music, and the lights etc.) and of course it's even better when there's something for all the family to enjoy.

Here's my round-up of the best Surrey displays this year:

Live music, food, drink, fireworks, what more could you ask for!

Torchlit Procession, Pipe Band, Bonfire and Fireworks. Sound like fun to me.

The worlds biggest Bruno Mars tribute act, free glow sticks, and fireworks. All

that's missing are the whistles!

London Lights

I miss the London displays now I live in Surrey, but I still keep an eye on what looks good, just in case I'm there on the date, although I am gutted Blackheath Fireworks has been cancelled for 2021 :( Here are my top temptations this year:

Music to my ears - literally with a light show, the legend that IS Trevor

Nelson to make me dance, and an ice disco. The fireworks feel like the icing

on the cake!

Live music, a funfair, and fireworks all in a gorgeous park on the outskirts of

south east London.

Two nights of fun! Saturday night will be the classic Bonfire celebration, with

Sunday night tailored to families and children with an earlier start time the

bonfire being replaced with a Visual Volcano!

About those recipes

If you know me by now, you know I am thoroughly de-skilled in the kitchen thanks to a hubby who cooks way better than I ever did. That said, if I do end up in charge of food and Deliveroo are busy, here are some failsafes that keep the bonfire outside and tummy's nicely full.

Silvana Franco's Hot Diggedy Dogs

Barney Desmazery's Bonfire Night Baked Potatoes

Esther Clark's Chimchurri-style Steak Sarnie and Cheat's Spicy Fries

I hope you have the most amazing fireworks celebrations, however you are spending them.
