Every year on the 5th of November there is a big event at Abbey Park to celebrate Bonfire Night also known as Guy Fawkes Night. Traditionally, we have a dummy on top to represent a man called Guy Fawkes. A plot called the gunpowder plot happened to form to kill James the 1st and his government by blowing up the House of Parliament.
This was because of the fact that the plotters were Catholic so they wanted England to change back to Catholic from Protestant.They thought this would happen if they killed James the 1st and his ministers.
In order for this to work, they placed 36 barrels of gunpowder in the cellars of Parliament. One of the members of the group wrote a letter to a friend, who worked in Parliament, warning him to stay away from Parliament on the 5th of November. Unfortunately, the supporters of King James the 1st got hold of the letter so guards went down to the cellars to catch the criminals. They got arrested and executed.
