UK Fire Festivals - Pictures of Winter Fire Celebrations Around the UK

Lighting Up the Night

By

All over the UK Fire Festivals light up and shorten the long, Northern European nights. Drawing on a heritage of Viking, Celtic, Anglo Saxon and ancient British traditions, and throwing in some modern high spirits for good measure, Brits don't need much of an excuse for lighting the touch paper to an assortment of fiery late autumn and midwinter celebrations. Giantic fireworks displays, huge bonfires, torchlight parades and breathtaking displays of fearlessness in the face of flames are all part of the UK Fire Festivals season. Take a look!
