Remember, remember, the knits of November

Bonfire night is one of our favourite nights of the year, which will be no surprise to the followers of our blog. Chilly nights, outdoor excursions with fireworks, warm knitwear…what could be better?

This November we want to help you keep the bitterness of winter at bay and brighten your days with our range of designer natural knitwear, as well as our suggestions on the best places to watch the fireworks this year and ways to celebrate.

Firework shows

Iggy & Burt | Natural Designer Knitwear

Ally Pally’s Firework Festival is our absolute favourite place to be on the 5th November. With dramatic and panoramic views over London, we really wouldn’t be anywhere else to watch the light show. Followed up by a live music set from Trevor Nelson and a German beer festival on site, this is guaranteed entertainment.

This year Ally Pally is also going to have a Spice Girls tribute band, an Ice Disco for the kids and a funfair. Heaven.

Book your tickets here to avoid disappointment.

If Ally Pally isn’t convenient, then similarly spectacular shows are put on Lewes, East Sussex, Leeds Castle in Kent, Chatsworth in Derbyshire and in Skinningrove in North Yorkshire.

Baking + Stargazing

If heading out into crowds isn’t your thing this bonfire night, then there is no reason why you can’t celebrate at home with your own entertainment and home comforts.

Any celebration for us is always centred around good food and company. Whilst we love a traditional toffee apple, they aren’t for everyone, so we are going to try and make this amazing toffee apple cake instead, with the recipe by Miriam Nice.

Once made, why not enjoy a slice whilst enjoying a bit of stargazing. Bliss.

Firepit with friends

If you are looking for something which is not a crowded event but not a complete quiet night in then what could be better than to invite some friends round to share an evening round a firepit, perhaps with some home done fireworks and sparklers.

There are a surprising number of companies out there that will let you do so and provide an attendant if required. Event Flame and Lovetipis are two such companies worth checking out.
