That was then…
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes, guy, t’was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England’s overthrow.
By god’s mercy he was catch’d
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
And what shall we do with him?
This is now.
Yes, we once again arrive at one of England’s more macabre festive events – Bonfire Night. We all know the story, sort of. Guy Fawkes attempted to blow up parliament. The plot failed, and Guy Fawkes met an unfortunate end. Now, to remember that, we let off fireworks and burn effigies of Fawkes, all in the spirit of good fun. But how much do you know about the Gunpowder Plot? Test yourself with our fun quiz, and let us know how you get on!

Yes, you read that right – normally £40 + VAT, you’ll pay half price!
