    Bit late but Guy Fawkes Night is only really celebrated in England. It celebrates the foiling of a Catholic plot to blow up the House of Lords and install a Catholic monarch so it's not really something Derry people would want to celebrate anyway.

    We also have a big fireworks display for Halloween so it'd be a bit soon to have another as well.
