As 5th November is just around the corner, here are some Bonfire Night events happening in the Capital.

The dark nights and colder weather signal the start of the autumn festivities, with Bonfire night being a highlight for most people. And, with supermarkets banning the sale of fireworks, heading to an organised display is the best way to enjoy the night with family and friends. Edinburgh and the surrounding areas have a lot of bonfire night events planned – here are our pick of the best.
