Bonfire night at Royal Holloway

We know it’s cold, but everyone loves fireworks.

It is reading week, so be sure to get out into the cold air and watch the explosions of colour around London and South West England for the 409th anniversary of Guy Fawkes’ gunpowder plot.

But if you can’t make it that far, here’s what’s going on in Egham tonight!

I don’t think this was taken in Egham.
