The true story behind Bonfire Night is being revealed at a Warwickshire hotel, which has direct connections to the historic event.
Coombe Abbey Hotel, just outside Coventry, was home to Princess Elizabeth, daughter of King James I, from 1603 to the time of the Gunpowder Plot in November 1605.
It was during that time that Guy Fawkes failed in his attempt to kill the king by blowing up the Houses of Parliament, kidnap Elizabeth and make her the new queen of England.
On Friday, November 1, Coombe Abbey hotel is honouring this connection by hosting a Gunpowder Gala Banquet, where actors will tell the story of the Gunpowder plot and the danger it presented to the hotel itself.
Visitors to the event, which is open to ages 16 and over, will also get the chance to enjoy a firework display over the hotel’s lake, as well as a four course banquet and disco.
Ron Terry, General Manager at Coombe Abbey hotel, said: “Coombe Abbey’s connection to the Gunpowder Plot makes it the ideal place to mark Bonfire Night 2013 and pay tribute to those who inspired the celebrations more than 400 years ago.”
