Cups of mulled wine, shouts of "ooh" and "aah" as fireworks light up the sky, the warmth of a raging bonfire; there’s something special about Guy Fawkes night that helps make the depths of winter so much more bearable.

After the cancellations of last year, events are back on across east London in 2021. Here are a few of our favourites to help you celebrate this year’s bonfire night in style.

Eton Manor fireworks

Eton Manor’s grand fireworks display is due to make a big return following a year off in 2020.

There will be plenty to get stuck into during the day, as the clubhouse bar opens at 1pm and a BBQ and outside bar will be ready from 5pm, before the fireworks show kicks off around 7.30pm.

Dulwich firework display

If you fancy getting out of east London and are looking for something a bit different, we recommend giving Dulwich’s firework display a go.

Labelled as Britain’s first "green" display, the event is keeping its fireworks but ditching the bonfire for a virtual one on a big screen.

Sparklers are also banned, as organisers Dulwich Football Club aims to try and reduce the event's impact on the environment.

Date: November 6, 5-7:30pm

Location: Dulwich Football Club, Giant Arches Road, SE24 9HP

Price: Adults £10, kids under 16 £1
