Reuthe’s No Bangs Bonfire Night - 6th November
For those of you who are a fan of the atmosphere of Bonfire Night, but not a fan of the explosive nature of it, this could be for you. Reuthe’s The Lost Gardens of Sevenoaks are hosting a firework-free night, which instead involves calming activities such as getting under a blanket with a glass of mulled wine, judging of your own Guy Fawkes and hot food made on their BBQ fire pit! A bonus too is that dogs on leads are always welcome, so you can bring your four-legged friend along if you feel appropriate!
