The 5th of November is loved and eagerly awaited by many. Thousands gather in their winter coats, complete with woolly hats, scarves and gloves to huddle round a huge fire and get an average view of a pretty naff firework display (let’s be honest!). Whereas, another group of people prefer to spend the night cosy, warm and having other kinds of fun. If you’re one of those types of people read on, here’s our handy guide to what to do this Bonfire night if you don’t fancy freezing all evening stood around in the cold:
Monday is a great night to choose to go out for dinner to a restaurant on as it’s less busy so you’re guaranteed great service and it’s a nice way to kick off the week- especially if it’s your first day back at work. Head to Yo Sushi to take advantage of their amazing Blue Monday deal, with plates from just £2.90. Italian chain Strada also offers amazing £5 pizzas on Mondays, perfect for indulging in after work if you’ve had a long day. Pizza Express also have an incredible 2 for 1 offer on all mains running, if you download a voucher from their website.
If you don’t fancy dining out, Vue cinemas have an amazing Monday evening movie deal running that you need to make the most of. With a whole host of new releases out, A Star is Born and Jonny English Three included, what better time to treat yourself to a night at the movies when it’s just £3.99 per ticket? Also, for any firework cynics this means you’re unlikely to see or hear any!
If fireworks aren’t your thing then why not take in a gig instead? With artists touring all year round you’re sure to have a local venue offering alternative entertainment. No matter if you’re into rap, rock, folk or country there’s sure to be something for you! The O2 Academy boasts 19 venues across 13 cities in the UK meaning you shouldn’t be too far from one of them and a great evening of entertainment. If mainstream artists aren’t your thing then why not check out some local music in your area, lots of cafes, pubs and restaurants will be hosting future superstars right on your doorstep.
Who said people who don’t like fireworks have to miss out on all the fun? With all of these options to choose from you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding what to do this Guy Fawkes night.
