Bonfire Night The Gunpowder Plot Explosive Experience Event

Thu, 5 November 2020 18:30 – 20:00 GMT

“You can’t start a fire 🔥 can’t start a fire without a spark, this Guy Fawkes for hire, even if we’re just teaching History after dark”

Are you or someone in your family a History Fan or Coventry History Fan?

“remember remember the 5th of November” is how the rhyme goes.

Back in 1605, Guy Fawkes sits in an Undercroft in London, alone with a penny for his thoughts waiting to light a match and bring the whole. house down.

Meanwhile, 100 miles up north in the Midlands in a pub in Coventry 3 members of the same gang are preparing to go hunting (or are they?).

8 miles away a Princess is blissfully unaware she’s about to become an orphan (or is she)

Join us this Bonfire Night at The historic Old Grammar School In Coventry for a history lesson that you won’t forget.

Headmaster ‘Whacker’ Dugdale and our History Teachers Mr Catesby & Mr Fawkes will take you through a history lesson with explosive consequences with Baked Potatoes & Bangers for lunch/dinner.

The gang involved in The Gunpowder Plot were waiting just outside Coventry whilst three of them were drinking within half a mile of the Old Grammar School (but where?)

This history lesson is LIVE with our acting teachers taking you through what happened, what was supposed to happen, what happened to the Princess and what could possibly go wrong.

We will examine maps, newspaper clippings and decipher treacherous letters.

Step back in time at The Old Grammar School as we transform it into Ye Olde Black Bull Inn, enjoy a glass of Gunpowder Gin, or a flagoon of Abbotts Ale from the bar as we explore, discover and learn the Plan, how they lost the Plot and what it meant for Coventry afterwards.

It’s The Gunpowder Plot but not as you know it. It’s The Coventry Gunpowder Plot.

The good news is, to keep everyone safe all tables are spaced well apart from each other. Our venue has a full Covid-19 safety approval, we have hand sanitizers and house rules dictate on attendees wearing masks until you are sat down at tables, (especially the Guy Fawkes ones you can buy from Jokers Corner on Far Gosford Street).We believe Bishops Street Car Park is free after 6pm

The downside of all this is we only have 5 Tables available for the night and they’re going quick (5 seats left)
