Winchester Round Table Bonfire & Fireworks Display
Celebrate Guy Fawkes Night at the Winchester Round Table Bonfire & Fireworks Display - events start with a torchlit procession from Broadway through the medieval centre of the town to River Park.
When the procession arrives at River Park, the Mayor of Winchester lights the bonfire, after which there is a spectacular fireworks display. The Winchester Round Table Bonfire & Fireworks Display is free, but do give generously to the Round Table organisers, who collect for a different charity each year: over the years more than £250,000 has been raised!
To help aid the charity in its fundraising efforts, this year the fireworks display is interactive with spectators able to text 'flash', 'bang' or 'scream' to 70099 in order to influence how the event is structured. Each text will see a minimum of 74p donated to local charities.
