Bonfire Night in Yorkshire

It’s very nearly that time of year again where we commemorate the failures of one of Yorkshire’s most famous (or infamous) son’s, Guy Fawkes. In Britain, November 5th means blazing bonfires and explosive fireworks, creating beautiful and colourful scenes in the night sky.

It’s been a few years since I’ve attended a bonfire, so the other night I took to twitter and asked the question; Where should we be going? Thankfully it didn’t fall on deaf ears and I received several suggestions. Since then I’ve gone away and looked into the top picks, and these are my 3 favourites (in no particular order):

1. The Devonshire Arms, nr. Skipton.

Situated on the Duke of Devonshire’s 30,000 acre Bolton Abbey Estate in the Yorkshire Dales, their annual Guy Fawkes Night is on Monday 5th November. This event includes; Fireworks, Bonfire, Hot Snacks, Refreshments, Free Car Parking, Free Shuttle Bus, Bar and Entertainment.

2. Roundhay Park, Leeds

Tens of thousands of people will be expected at Leeds’ biggest bonfire and fireworks event. On offer will be live music, thundering fireworks and a gigantic bonfire. This free event also takes place on 5th November.

3. Kaboom!, York

What more do I need to say that the title doesn’t already? Kaboom, held on Sunday 4th, is set to be North Yorkshire’s biggest fireworks display. Designed by one of the world’s best pyro-technicians, the fireworks will be fully choreographed with lighting and special FX, celebrating 50 years of James Bond and York’s links to two other famous Yorkshire folk; Dame Judi Dench and Bond theme composer John Barry.

Wherever you decide to go, stay safe and have a great night.
