Guy Fawkes celebrations will be held across the county once again in November.

With November 5 falling on a Monday this year, most displays will take place either the weekend before the big night or the weekend after.

Welwyn Garden City Football Club, however, will be staging its now annual display ahead of the rest on Friday, November 2.

There will be huge public displays in Hatfield, St Albans, Watford, Letchworth, Hertford and Potters Bar on Saturday, November 3. Redbourn’s display will also take place on the Saturday.

Cheshunt will host its 2012 display on Sunday, November 4, as will Harpenden Rugby Club and Butterfly World at Chiswell Green, near St Albans. There’s also a display in Letchworth on Sunday.
