Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot... Bonfire Night 2019 is fast approaching and here are some of the fireworks displays taking place across Hertfordshire this year to mark the occasion.
Spectacular fireworks displays will be held across the county to celebrate Bonfire Night.
With Guy Fawkes Night falling on a Tuesday this year, most displays will take place over the weekend ahead of November 5, although a few will be carried over to Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10 - meaning you can satisfy your fireworks fix two weekends in a row.
If you are wondering where you can see some fireworks in Hertfordshire this year, here's a selection of events taking place.
