2 November: Kenilworth Castle Bonfire Gala
The Fireworks & Bonfire at Kenilworth Castle is organised by the Kenilworth Round Table.
It is one of the largest bonfire & firework displays in the Midlands. This means that there are a lot of people there and it can feel quite crowded. There are a number of food stalls in the grounds, but these can also tend to have long queues.
There are also a few vantage points from outside the castle grounds, but these are usually commandeered by photographers with tripods trying to get that perfect shot.
Despite the crowds and issues around limited parking, it is worth noting that in 2018 Visit England listed it as one of their Top 5 firework displays.
If you have never been, it is definitely worth going to see it at least once.
3 November: Carnival of Lights
The Carnival of Lights is a new event for the calendar this year!
It is a Lantern Procession which starts at Foleshill Community Centre at 5.15pm. The Lantern Procession will head into the City Centre and finish in Broadgate. There will be floats, live performances, and Bollywood dancers with LED umbrellas. It sounds rather fabulous!
