On the 6th November 2015 at 7pm the bonfire will once again be lit at Light into Europe’s Bonfire Night Party sponsored by DHL Express Romania. The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Bucharest with ticket price including food from the BBQ, drinks including Heineken beer and our specially brewed mulled wine as well as a fantastic firework display and bonfire where you can keep warm!

Historically, Bonfire Night celebrates the failed attempt by Guy Fawkes to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1605. Many people all around London celebrated the king surviving the attack by lighting bonfires and The King of England (James) decreed this should happen every year, now here we are 410 years later still following the tradition!

Tickets for this event can be purchased in advance at 3 categories: Adults – 100 RON, Children (11-16) – 50 RON, Children (Under 11) – Free, but need a ticket. Tickets purchased on the night are 150 RON regardless of age. To purchase tickets, email: [email protected]

All proceeds from the evening will go to support the work of Light into Europe, specifically the Guide Dogs for the Blind programme which is Romania’s first and only organisation raising and training guide dogs to support the 100,000 blind people living in Romania

“It is great to see how many people from different cultures are present on this special evening, making it one of the key multicultural events taking place in Bucharest, and at the same time supporting our cause.” said  Capt. Stan Platt, President of Light into Europe. “It is an evening of talking and meeting old friends and making new, a real must to attend before the winter really sets in.” he added.

This event is organised with the help of DHL Express Romania as main sponsors, alongside Crowne Plaza Hotel as hosts. We are also thankful to other companies that help make this event possible; Campofrio, Heineken, Intercontinental Hotel, Unilever, Ana Pan and individuals Oliver Meister & Maria Laura Ciampoli.
