VISITORS will have the chance to discover the use that Guy Fawkes intended to put gunpowder to at a series of special theatrical performances at The Royal Gunpowder Mills over the Bonfire Night weekend.

The Ghost of Guy Fawkes, a light-hearted re-telling of the Gunpowder Plot story, will be performed on Saturday, November 5, and Sunday, November 6, at the old gunpowder mills in Beaulieu Drive in Waltham Abbey.

There will also be spectacular fireworks displays, a fair and a range of craft activities at the events.

Gates open for the Guy Fawkes Spectaculars at 2pm and last admissions are at 5.45pm.

Tickets cost £8.50 for adults, £6 for children from 3 to 16, and children under 3 are admitted for free.

Family discounts are also available.
