  • Tip of the day:

5th November Bonfire Night (Guy Fawkes Night)

From The English Room:

“Leipzig’s ONLY Bonfire Night

“Remember, remember the fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot.
We see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

“We can’t believe that another year has whizzed by and that it’s already time for our favourite British tradition. If you’ve been to one of our bonfire nights before you already know what to expect, and if not…

“Bonfire Night means fireworks, a bonfire, delicious food, hot drinks, happy faces (I think we only scared children one year), and a little bit of British eccentricity…

“When: 5th November at 20:15

“Where:  The English Room, Käthe-Kollwitz-Str. 54, 04109, Leipzig

“Price: 1€ towards the cost of the fireworks.”

Marjon is Dutch and came to Leipzig in August 2013 with her family, because her husband got a job in the area. At the time she still had her own copywriting company, producing Dutch texts for websites, press releases, brochures, etc. She is an avid social media user and a passionate (digital) networker. Marjon has a degree in tourism management, which partially explains why she is always on the look-out for interesting Leipzig events and attractions.
