Display to send sparks flying

A MEDIEVAL castle is to celebrate Guy Fawkes night with a bang.

English Heritage has confirmed that a traditional firework display will make a welcome return to Derbyshire’s Bolsover Castle on Saturday, November 3.

Families are expected to flock to the event, which was revived last year and saw thousands of visitors pack out the grounds.

Lucy Hutchings, events manager for Bolsover Castle, said: “We will be bringing the story of Guy Fawkes to life through performance, music and special effects.

“Musicians will retell the story of Guy Fawkes to popular music, the jester will entertain the crowds with his school for fools and impressive fire show, and the Riding House will be illuminated with a dramatic bonfire projection.”
