Weather Resistant Outerwear

In the UK, we all know that the weather can be unpredictable, and Bonfire Night is no different, so it’s important to be prepared for any weather.

A weather resistant outer layer, such as a waterproof jacket or a windbreaker, will help to keep you dry and protected from the elements. Look for jackets with hoods to keep your head and neck warm and dry.

Warm Accessories

Accessories can make all the difference when it comes to staying warm on Bonfire Night. A warm hat, gloves, and scarf are all essential items for the cold, crisp nights.

Look for hats made from wool or synthetic fabrics that cover your ears. Gloves should be insulated and waterproof to keep your hands warm and dry and scarves can add an extra layer of warmth around your neck or used to cover your face in case of wind or rain.

Thermal Underwear

Investing in thermal underwear for Bonfire Night is another great way to stay warm and cosy.

It will help to keep you warm by trapping a layer of warm air against your skin. Look for thermal tops and bottoms made from materials like wool or synthetic fabrics that keep moisture away from your skin to help you stay warn and dry.


Choosing the right footwear is essential for a cold winter night.  

We recommend a pair of leather or Chelsea boots. If the event is in a field, wellies are a great option to keep your feet dry if it’s been raining and the ground is damp.

Don’t forget to wear thick, wool socks for that extra layer of warmth and comfort. A good pair of socks provide additional protection against any dampness that may seep into your boots.
