The Old Moat House in Luton and the Old Red Lion in Houghton Regis want children to design their own Guy Fawkes for the chance to win.

Prizes include a family meal at their local Crown Cavery restaurant, £50 worth of school art equipment and, if they get through to the national finals, the top prize of hundreds of pounds worth of art equipment.

The winner of the top prize will be the one with the most votes on the Crown Caveries’ Facebook page.

Old Moat House manager John Cowlard said: “We get lots of children in our restaurant and found that many of them didn’t realise Bonfire Night is a celebration of a failed plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament so we decided to mark the famous event in style.”

The compeititon is open to children aged 4-10, if they enter through their school. Download an entry pack from www.crowncarveries.co.uk. Entry deadline Monday October 17.
