Horrible Histories, Guy Fawkes Costume, Red & Green, with Jacket with attached Cape, Trousers & Hat. Lots of people and especially children love Fireworks , but they often are not familiar with the story of Guy Fawkes himself.
'Remember remember the 5th of November' is an old rhyme that does exactly what it says . It reminds us that on the 5th of November in 1605 . Guy Fawkes along with 12 other men decided they wanted to blow up the Houses of Parliment . By doing this they were hoping to kill the King and The Prince of Wales and other members of the Parliment because they believed it was these people that were making life difficult for Catholics .
Guy Fawkes plan was foiled , he was caught , tortured and then executed . This is why we celebrate Guy Fawkes night to this day and is where the idea of great bonfires and 'Penny for the Guy' originates from .
So get your child dressed up as the man himself in this extravagant costume. Perfect for school curriculum days , Villians and even in some people's mind a legend and also Bonfire night itself !
