Sparks are set to fly in Royston and the surrounding villages this weekend as a host of bonfire night displays take place across the area.
On Friday at Roysia Middle School in Royston there will be a fireworks display, along with fairground rides, refreshments, sweets and glow in the dark novelties stall. The gates open at 6pm.
Organiser Beth Moorley told the Crow: “The event has been going for many years and we are all really excited to put on a fun, family-friendly evening for the community to enjoy.
“With the structure of schools potentially changing, this could be the last one at Roysia – so we want to make it something to remember. We have been grateful for the community support over the years, and we hope to see everyone back on Friday night for a big celebration.”
