In Billericay our local bonfire at the park always used to have a guy. Not sure about now though. Being at university I can't go down for bonfire night any more. Anyway it's all sponsered by Essex FM now, so loads of pop music, "special guests" (eg minor local DJ's and unmemorable Big Brother contestants), and a huge fair with noisy rides and as much junk food as you can eat. Plus a huge fat price. The actual bonfire and fireworks are actually pretty irrelevant now.
It used to be a great display though.
