Remember, remember – it’s nearly Bonfire Night!

Remember, remember the fifth of November…but don’t worry if you’ve forgotten – there’s plenty going on in and around Helmsley this weekend and we’re here to help out!

If you’ve been keeping up to date with BBC One’s recent Saturday night drama, Gunpowder, you’ll know the story – the Catholic Guy Fawkes (along with 12 other young men) plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill the Protestant King James I and hence, we have Bonfire Night.

The annual celebration is something we look forward to every year. After the ‘eeks’ and ‘aarghs’ of Halloween, who can help themselves from ‘ooohing’ and ‘aaahing’ while watching a spectacular firework display?

On Saturday night, the Helmsley Recreation Charity will host its Firework Extravaganza at the Sports Ground from 7pm.

The event, which raises money for the charity, will include a raffle, tombola, bar and food stalls, followed by a free disco from 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 and available on the night.

This weekend also marks the end of UK Sausage Week and what better way to celebrate than with a tasting of the brand new range of sausages at Thomas of Helmsley on ‘Super Sausage Saturday’!

And after a busy day, what better way to relax than sinking down into the Egyptian cotton sheets in one of our 33 individually designed bedrooms and suites?
