About this deal
Guy Fawkes was a soldier and he was not the only person involved in the plot to blow up Parliament. He made his plan with a group of 12 English Catholic gentlemen. The leader was Sir Robert Catesby. As a soldier, Fawkes was in charge of the gunpowder. The men rented a room underneath Parliament and filled 36 barrels with gunpowder – probably about 2,500 kilograms. Fawkes stayed to blow up the barrels and then escape. But someone sent a letter to Lord Monteagle, a Catholic, to tell him not to go to Parliament that day. In this way, the plot was discovered, and Guy Fawkes was caught before he could carry it out. The ice rink and UK’s largest German Bier Festival will also be among the highlights – not to mention a live performance from Kylie tribute act Rogue Minogue. Don’t leave bonfires unattended. An adult should supervise it until it has burnt out.

The passage in 1774 of the Quebec Act, which guaranteed French Canadians free practice of Catholicism in the Province of Quebec, provoked complaints from some Americans that the British were introducing "Popish principles and French law".  Such fears were bolstered by opposition from the Church in Europe to American independence, threatening a revival of Pope Day.  Commenting in 1775, George Washington was less than impressed by the thought of any such resurrections, forbidding any under his command from participating:  What: After a sell-out in the past two years, including a pyromusical in 2022, the club is planning another special night mixing fireworks and music for its 17th Bonfire Night event.
