Massive firework display returns to Hatfield

FOR the second year running, a massive firework display will take place in the grounds of Hatfield House.

The stately home will once again host the display on Friday, November 5, as people across the UK mark the 405th anniversary of Guy Fawkes’ infamous plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament.

Besides the fireworks, there will be a bonfire, light entertainment and refreshments.

Proceeds from the event will go to the mayor of Welwyn Hatfield’s charities, which this year are Help for Heroes and The Mixed Group.

Mayor Howard Morgan, said: “I’m very pleased Hatfield House has agreed to help me to support my charities this year and would like to thank Lord and Lady Salisbury for their repeated hospitality.
