Bonfire Night Firework Displays in Nottinghamshire & Beyond

Bonfire Night celebrations and fireworks displays across Nottinghamshire, just like the whole of the UK, have sadly fallen victim to the coronavirus restrictions and are in very short supply this November 2020.

Virtually all the wonderful Bonfire Night events and fireworks displays usually held at our local rugby clubs, sports & social clubs, community spaces and pubs, in villages and towns, have been cancelled, but we’ve looked really hard and found you some fireworks events in Nottinghamshire and further afield.

My latest foodie discovery near Retford, North Notts

I made a great discovery a couple of weeks ago when I was driving back home from a visit to Retford -  a wonderful fruit and vegetable stall in the centre of Sutton cum Lound village.  It was stocked with such an amazing array of fresh, seasonal vegetables, salads and fruits that I had to stop and buy some!
