    I would imagine that this year there will be far fewer fireworks as people just won't be able to afford them.
    Having said that could your friend afford to stay in a hotel somewhere quiet for a couple of nights?

    I think it maybe difficult if they don't know anyone living in the middle of no where. Fireworks tend to start a few weeks before bonfire night.
    Have they thought about buying a pair of ear defenders? They will block out all the noise and are not that expensive if you look on Amazon, i would post a link but advertising a paid product isn't allowed here.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You will need to ask them where it is.

    That's a really difficult one and I feel for you, I don't know where you live so can't help with places much but you could try googling bed and breakfasts or holiday lets under the postcode where he used to stay, try and make sure wherever you find doesn't have a firework display nearby as they have annual displays where I grew up in the country. Hope you find somewhere
