Schoolchildren in Warwick have been helping the town get ready for its annual bonfire and fireworks night by creating Guys for the bonfire.
Last week, the Mayor of Warwick, Cllr Parminder Singh Birdi, visited Westgate and Newburgh Primary Schools to see Guys made by the children for the Bonfire.
The fireworks event will be taking place at Warwick Racecourse on November 5.
There will be hot food and drinks, all the bars will be open, and the racecourse offers a dinner ticket in the Kingmaker Bar.
Warwick Lions members will be selling hot mulled wine, Kimberley Sweets will be back, and local Samba band Sambassadors of Sound will provide entertain.
This year the show is set to music by Fantastic Fireworks.
Gates open at 5pm and there will be a short children’s show at 6pm before the bonfire is lit at 6.30pm followed by the main show.
Organisers, the Warwick Lions and the Rotary Club of Warwick, say they are delighted by the support from Warwick Racecourse which is handling all the ticketing and are hoping for record crowds again this year.
Local sponsorship has been provided by Bovis Homes, Geberit, Feldon Dunsmore, Godfrey Payton, Delta Marriott hotels and Warwick Kia, and the pallets for the Bonfire are supplied by Uniparts Logistics.
All proceeds raised from the event will go to local charities and good causes and last year’s event raised more than £28,000.
