Doors open at 6.30pm and the fireworks get underway at 8.00pm. Admission is £3 for adults and £1 for children. The proceeds go towards the Bletchley Park, which runs the historic museum.
We are promised that "As the rousing wartime music rings out and the spectacular firework display sets the sky alight, visitors can warm themselves with delicious burgers from the barbeque and a drink or two from the bar, while the children enjoy the traditional fun fair."
This time of year has been associated with fireworks for centuries. The year after the "Gunpowder Plot" was thwarted was the first Day of National Thanksgiving for deliverance from this attempt to murder the leadership of the country. It was a statutory thanksgiving day until 1859.
