It’s no surprise that Bonfire night is a firm family favourite.  The 5th November sees people of all ages flocking to local green spaces to see in winter with a night of entertainment, pyrotechnics and an abundance of sugary treats.  This year South West London residents will be treated to a choice of several excellent fireworks displays and to save you time we’ve put together a list of them.
