Birmingham Under Fire(works)

Big ben burns…

The leaves have finally started to fall from the trees, the temperature has dropped to “normal” English November, and once again it’s coming up to Guy Fawkes Night, where we all celebrate that failed attempt at “regime change” of 1605. To celebrate, countless hoodlums will be purchasing bottle rockets from Asda and setting them off at ungodly hours of the night in neighbourhoods are the city. Expect this onslaught to continue until approximately January 2007.

But if you want to see some REAL fireworks there are a fair few bonfires & fireworks exhibitions being put on around town over the weekend. Since the 5th is Sunday this year a few venues, such as the show at Pype Hayes park, will take place on Saturday. Fortunately the Edgbaston Cricket Ground is sticking to tradition and will be putting a show on for the Sunday. Now I just have to put together a good “Guy” to throw on the fire!
