The sky above North Somerset will be full of bright colours and the sound of crackles and bangs this weekend.

Bonfire Night on Monday will remember the night of the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605 when Guy Fawkes and his comrades attempted to blow up the House of Lords.

To celebrate the fact King James I had survived the attempt on his life and Fawkes had been arrested while guarding the explosives, people lit bonfires around London to mark the event.

This weekend will see people in North Somerset look to the sky at the brilliant array of displays to honour this age old British tradition.

Here are the events taking place around the district:
