Go to the fireworks in Brockwell Park

Regular readers will by now have cottoned on that your author likes bonfire night, not because of the Catholic persecution, but because there is something altogether more primal about a tradition that makes people go out into the dark together to watch fire as autumn draws in. This year's Guy Fawkes Night celebrations in London largely draw to a close tonight, with displays in Wimbledon Park, Southwark Park, Crystal Palace Park and Brockwell Park.

Brockwell Park features a spectacularly odd mix of Fireman Sam and Vivaldi's "Four Seasons” with, rather oddly, the four seasons mirrored in the areas of the park with Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter, and Morris men, stilt walkers, fire dancers and live music.
