Waterfords Weekends - The complimentary guide to what's on near you.
Waterfords Estate Agents, selling and renting homes in Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley, is delighted to bring you a selection of local events this bonfire and fireworks season 2019!
The days are getting shorter, conkers are falling from the trees and there is a warm haze of autumn colours across our towns and villages. Guy Fawkes Night is just around the corner! The official annual event is on 5th November but with that being a Tuesday this year, the celebrations seem to be spread out more than usual.
Dazzling shows will light up the skies, bonfires will be lit and torch lit parades will glow along our streets. Entries to some of these events require a ticket in advance so make sure you plan ahead.
