Bonfire night

I love bonfire night. This is the first one where I'll have a decent camera so I thought I'd take some shots. But here's the thing: as I said, I really enjoy bonfire night. Because of that I don't want to lug a tripod around with me so I'm going to have to stick to hand-held stuff. To make matters worse, I only have an onboard flash.

I'd like suggestions from you guys on what sort of shots I should attempt to take to avoid having a huge amount of wastage. I've already thought of a few slow shutter ones to get light trails. Will I be able to take any shots of fireworks at all, do you think?

Also, slow shutter and fireworks are all very well but I'd like to capture the feeling of the night a bit more as well. I don't just want a shot of a big bonfire and a sea of heads/hats.
