virtual bonfire night
Bonfire Night has to be my favourite night of the year. I plan Bonfire Night like other people plan birthdays or Christmas. From mittens, lined boots, sparklers, toffee apples, flasks of spiced rum- to the exhilaration of fizzing firework displays. Kids are allowed to stay up late and grown ups can eat hot dogs for dinner.
I couldn’t love it more.
But with no public firework displays this year and no gatherings over 6- things are set to be a little more subdued. And that’s where we swoop into your rescue. No soggy sparklers around these parts. Not on my watch. This year it’s all about the virtual bonfire… yes, fire up your laptop, gather your friends around zoom and light up our marshmallow toasting experience.
Now you can catch up around the flames of our indoor mini brazier and toast your favourite gourmet marshmallows. Then finish of the evening with a flourish as we’re giving you a FREE packet of mini indoor sparklers with every toasting kit purchased.
So fill me a glass of red and snuggle me in a cosy blanket...bonfire night's not cancelled, it just got a little cosier.
