Watch free fireworks on Wanstead Flats

As noted over on the fantastic IanVisits, there are plenty of places to see fireworks in London on bonfire night, and over the weekend, but due to budget cuts it would appear an increasingly limited number of them are free. However, over on Wanstead Flats the Mayor of Newham is determined to throw a free party, and is doing so along with Pains Fireworks, a top award-winning UK fireworks company.

You might wish you'd paid to go somewhere else, however, as the fireworks are being set to the Harry Potter theme music, Queen's ‘A Kind of Magic' and ‘I Put a Spell on You' by Nina Simone.

Other free displays over the weekend include Clapham Common and Southwark, which are also tonight, and then two of the biggest, the Blackheath and Victoria Park displays, later in the weekend. For what it's worth, your author will be taking the train just outside this website's comfort zone, to the unbeatable Brockham Bonfire in Surrey, which is Britain's biggest.
