Ilfracome Rugby Club will screen TV footage of a bonfire on their 16ft screen, while speakers play the sound of crackling wood, and a smoke machine and giant heaters create the feel of a real bonfire.
It’s the third year the club has opted for a virtual fire rather than a real one, according to the BBC, citing cost and safety as the reasons, although they do plan to let off £2,500-worth of fireworks during the display on Friday.
