Autumn is well and truly upon us and, here at Field Lover, we're loving watching the change of seasons. The trees surrounding the office are now shades of vibrant red and orange, it's dark when we leave (OK, this might not be such a good thing), and there are certain staff members who are already talking about....ssshhhh.....Christmas.
One event that's coming up is Guy Fawkes night on 5th November, with many towns, villages, and cities holding fireworks displays this weekend. Since we received such a good response to our August Bank Holiday 'to do' guide, we thought we'd put a similar list of firework displays together. These are events that we have either been to ourselves, or have heard rave reviews about in years gone by. If you have any you'd like to add, please do submit a comment and tell the rest of the Field Lover community!
