Bonfire Night: Events in Shropshire and how to get tickets for firework displays

With Halloween behind us, Bonfire Night is just around the corner and across the county residents are preparing their best 'oohs' and 'aahs' in preparation for a banger of a night.

Tickets are still available for the wealth of opportunities the county is offering to warm up by a big fire, with most events happening on November 5, the anniversary of the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot.

Many event organisers are celebrating their first year free of Covid restrictions so it's heating up to be a big night for many towns across the county.

So put down your pumpkins, pop on your gloves and treat yourself to some warm doughnuts at some of the biggest, brightest, and loudest events the county has to offer.
