Remember, remember the fifth of November – in Devon, home to one of the last remaining traditional bonfire night events, you can’t miss the excitement of bonfire night, from tar barrel rolling to enormous fires and firework displays, there’s loads of ways to celebrate here.

Here are a selection of bonfire night events taking place across the county, starting with the most exciting…

Tar Barrels, Ottery St Mary.
Saturday, 5th November, 7pm.
This traditional event has been taking place for generations and involves residents carrying flaming tar barrels in a fire lit procession through the centre of the village towards a large bonfire – it’s a West Country pastime you won’t find anywhere else, so if you’re in the area, make sure to get yourself to Ottery!
