REMEMBER remember the 5th of November... but don’t forget the Bletchley Park Blitz night, which will be lighting up the skies on Saturday.

The annual Blitznight will once again feature rousing wartime music, a dazzling fireworks display and a traditional funfair.

Visitors can keep warm with hot food and drinks on the menu, or if you prefer, a drink from the bar, while youngsters can make the most of the fun and games.

New City Heating are once again sponsoring the event, having increased their sponsorship to put on the most spectacular show to date.

Gates open at 5.30pm for the funfair and BBQ and the fireworks begin at 8pm.

Adults, £4, children, £2 (under 5’s free) - all proceeds go towards the Bletchley Park Charitable Trust.

THORNBOROUGH village hosts its own annual Bonfire & Fireworks event this Saturday evening, beginning, as is traditional, with the Torchlit Procession from The Two Brewers Public House, at 6.30pm.

The parade will lead up Nash Road to the outskirts of the village, before everyone heads to the bonfire and firework show – gates open at 7pm, the fire will be lit at 7.15pm and will be followed 15 minutes later by the display.

Guys – for the bonfire, are welcome, so do bring your creative ‘works’ along for a roasting!

Admission is £5 for adults, £3 for senior citizens and children, and there is plenty of parking to be had along the High Street and village green.

If the forecast looks wet and gloomy, a marquee will be tethered in the field, and selling yummy hot food and drink.

Mulled wine, anyone?

ON Sunday evening, Olney will sparkle with its own fireworks night, happening at the recreation ground behind the football club, off East Street.

Aside from the sky bright bit, attractions will include a fair, sweet stalls, and an indoor and outdoor bar, which will be offering Hopping Mad ales from Olney’s own micro brewery.

You bring your coat, scarves and mittens and Olney Brass will bring the music.

Tickets are £5 and £4 for single tickets, £11 and £9 for family entry, available on the gates or in advance from many local retailers.

Gates at 5pm, fireworks at 6.30pm.
