Yes, the Summer has well and truly left us, but do not despair, because here at Fireworks Den we can think of many reasons to celebrate autumn. We are not quite into the realm of those freezing nights, so take advantage of the last snippets of pleasant weather and take a look at some of the reasons we think you should celebrate autumn.
For a start, this time of year produces some of the most beautiful spectacles in the natural world. The leaves on the trees are turning into wonderful shades of reds and golden browns. There are myriad places across the UK to visit open parks and spaces to witness this for yourself. You can go to Kew Gardens in London for example (where there is currently a great exhibition about edible plants too). This is one of our top picks to celebrate autumn and see the plants changing across the seasons.
There are also a heap of other events happening across the capital. There is something for everyone whether it be family days out, romantic places to visit, or festivals and art events. Here are some of our top picks which we think will help to lessen the post-summer blues and instead to celebrate autumn.
- The London Design Festival – Innovation, craft, and all things creative in several exhibition spaces across the capital.
- The Great Gorilla Run – A 7km race around the streets of London dressed up as hairy gorillas in aid of mountain gorillas.
- Colourscape Music Festival – A giant sensory labyrinth. A pretty hard one to explain!
- Punch Drunk: The Drowned Man – Interactive theatre. This one sells out fast so book early to get your tickets!
Of course, here at Fireworks Den, we think you should celebrate autumn with some fireworks! It’s not so incredibly cold outside just yet, but its getting darker earlier. This equates to perfect firework weather! We even have a firework with a perfectly apt name for this season. Check out ‘Ducks playing in the autumn leaves’. Of course there are many other fireworks available all year round at Fireworks Den, so if you are planning a firework evening to celebrate autumn – or any other occasion for that matter, then don’t hesitate to come in store or contact us and we will be happy to help.
