We’re getting excited about Bonfire Night already and we haven’t even had Halloween. I think it’s because we’re loving the new BBC drama ‘Gunpowder’, grotesque though it’s been at times. The cinematography is so good you feel as though you’re watching a top quality movie or a Game of Thrones episode. Admittedly, that may also have something to do with the Game of Thrones star Kit Harington who is playing his ancestor Robert Catesby, who alongside the infamous Guy Fawkes plotted to blow up parliament. What are you planning for this Bonfire Night, the night that we think signals the move into winter, marshmallows, woolly hats and the last big family gathering before Christmas?
We always get together to see a fireworks display before heading back to one of our homes for a get together in front of the first open fire of the winter. We’re off to the Tring Festival of Fire at the Cricket Club where there’ll be food, drink, entertainment and a Guy Parade before heading home to our place. A get together afterwards wouldn’t be the same without some mulled wine, background music, followed by some silly singalongs and kids singing entertainment and we’re looking forward to all of them!
Here are a few ideas that could keep your Bonfire Night guests entertained whatever their ages:
This cool gadget in stylish grey, at £39.99 +P&P, comes in a stylish rubberised matt finish, with rounded edges and retro volume and tuning dials. The small but perfectly formed music powerhouse also gives impressive audio quality through the 4 watt RMS speakers. Switch between DAB and FM radio, and select the station you need, which is clearly displayed on the 2.8” LCD screen. The alarm clock gives you the option to wake up by radio or buzzer, depending on your mood and it also features a snooze button, sleep function, headphone jack and battery back-up.
This retro portable speaker, at only £18.99 +P&P, comes in a cool boombox design and is a doddle to move around, with the party. Play your music from a smartphone, MP3 player, iPhone or PC either wirelessly via Bluetooth or through the USB or aux-in connection. With the 5W RMS speaker, Bluetooth range up to 10 metres and built-in battery with 8 hours of playing time, you can play and sing along to your heart’s content.
At only £17.99 +P&P, this new style of textile speaker brings sleek Nordic design to the style conscious music lover. Available in pink, blue and black/grey to match your decor, with tactile fabric speakers, smooth rubber edging and soft PU leather carry strap, it feels as good as it looks and sounds. Play your music from your smartphone, MP3 player, iPhone or PC either wirelessly via Bluetooth 4.1 or through a USB or aux-in connection. You can even charge your phone at the same time! The 2 x 3W RMS speakers give you great sound and with a Bluetooth operating range of 8-10 metres, your tunes will continue to play even from the other side of the room. With 3 hours of playing time when the built-in battery is fully charged, you and your party guests can listen to your music in style.
We hope you have a fun Bonfire Night, with lots of music and laughter,
