Bonfire Night will soon be upon us, and if you live in Sussex you'll be spoilt for choice on fireworks displays to attend.

Also known as Guy Fawkes Night, it commemorates the occasion in 1605 when Fawkes was arrested whilst guarding explosives that had been placed underneath the House of Lords as part of the Gunpowder Plot.

Whether your main enjoyment comes from the colourful fireworks, massive bonfires or the added bits that come with these events, there should be something that catches your eye.

We've rounded up several fireworks displays you'll be able to attend at the end of October and the beginning of November around Sussex
