Here’s what’s happening tomorrow night to commemorate Guy Fawkes’ failed attempt to destroy the Houses of Parliament in 1605.

EDINBURGH

The biggest fireworks display in the capital as ever takes place at Meadowbank Stadium, with doors opening at 6pm and entertainment from 6.30pm. Rockets commence at 7.30pm. Tickets are £6.50 - but you could always view the fireworks from nearby Holyrood Park for nothing.

DUNDEE

Head up to Lochee Park for the City of Discovery’s annual fireworks display and a bonfire night tomorrow. Entertainment begins 6pm with the main event beginning an hour later. There is no car parking at Lochee Park, so the council advises attendees either to walk or take public transport.

ABERDEEN

Aberdeen Beach is where the Granite City’s display takes place. Entertainment begins at 6.30pm with the main event at 7.30pm. The best views are from around Beach Boulevard and along the Esplanade.

DUNFERMLINE

The town’s Pittencrieff Park - or the Glen as local calls it - is the place to be. The fireworks begin at 7pm but entertainment begins an hour earlier.

FALKIRK

The annual display Callendar Park attracts around 20,000 people, so it’s best to get along early. There’s live music from 6.30pm, with the countdown to the fireworks beginning at 7.28pm sharp.

CUMBERNAULD

Make your November 5 go with a bang at St Maurice’s High School playing fields. This free event will light up the skies at 7.30pm.

ALLOA

Gates open at West End Park at 6pm with fireworks at 7.30pm. Admission is £3 for adults and £2 for children.
