Every Bonfire Night, Brits flock to their nearest soggy field en-masse to huddle together, eat toffee apples and cheerfully burn effigies of a would-be terrorist.

One of Dorset's most well-attended events, Weymouth's annual Bonfire Night celebration takes place on (when else?), Monday, November 5.

Gates open at 6.30pm, before the fireworks start at 8pm.

Of course, while there's nothing quite like going to a displays, some of the most spectacular views can be found elsewhere in the city, why not try Calton Hill or Bruntsfield Links to take in the views.

Harrow promises fun for all the family too, with stalls, food traders, henna hand art and face painting.

Tickets are on sale in Ernhills Bakery, All Blooming Things, Brandlesholme Chippy, Spar BP Garage and Woodbank News, and are priced at £4 and £2.

Family tickets are available for two adults and two children at £25.

Saturday, November 3 at 6.30pm.

A safety campaign to inform the public about the dangers of bonfires and fireworks has been carried out.

"You can reduce the chance of anything unexpected happening by supervising children at all times, keeping pets indoors, making sure everyone is stood well back, and not drinking alcohol if you are lighting fireworks".

The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm, followed by the fireworks at 7.15pm.

Tickets will be available from St Peter's and Padiham leisure centres, the Mechanics Theatre, Prairie Sports Village and Towneley Hall (cash only). Entry is £2 payable at the gate with children free.

Every year on Bonfire Night families across the United Kingdom gather outside to enjoy firework displays commemorating the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605.

The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm, a laser show will start at 7pm and there will be fireworks from 7.30pm.

There will also be a licensed bar, including mulled wine.
