Houses of Parliament to be ‘blown up’ in Sidbury
THE Houses of Parliament will be ‘blown up’ in Sidbury on Saturday.
Organisers of the village’s annual fireworks spectacular have constructed a bonfire which is a replica of the iconic London landmark – and will burn it to the ground as part of the November 5 fun.
The gunpowder plot will be re-enacted – this time successfully - during festivities in the grounds of Sidbury Manor.
Guy Fawkes will be present to light the fuse at 6.30pm.
Gates open at 5.30 pm and live music will be provided by local band the Raphalites.
